GENERAL INFORMATION 

Historical 

A great educational awakening in the South became apparent near the 
beginning of the twentieth century. By 1905 the citizens of Mississippi were 
demanding better educational facilities for their children. The obvious need 
for better educated teachers for all the public schools of Mississippi and the 
organized efforts of the State Teachers Association culminated during the 
legislative session of 1910 in an enabling act establishing the Mississippi Normal 
College. Since its opening in the fall of 1912, this institution has existed under 
four names. In 1924 the name was changed to State Teachers College. In 1940 
it became Mississippi Southern College. And on February 27, 1962, the institu- 
tion was named the University of Southern Mississippi. 

This victory of progressive and democratic leadership inspired the first Board 
of Trustees to make broad and far reaching plans for the new institution. The 
generosity of Forrest County and Hattiesburg in offering $260,000 in cash, 840 
acres of land, and other valuable considerations for the privilege of having the 
college located in Hattiesburg made it possible for the newly elected president, 
Joseph Anderson Cook, who had been serving as superintendent of the public 
schools of Columbus, Mississippi, and the Board to begin the construction of 
buildings. Before the opening in the fall of 1912, five permanent buildings (all 
of which have been renovated and are still in use) were completed: the presi- 
dent's home, College Hall, two dormitories — Hattiesburg Hall for women and 
Forrest County Hall for men, and an industrial cottage for girls (now the 
Speech and Hearing Science Building) . Frame buildings, since replaced, were 
constructed to house the dining hall and kitchen, power house, and barn. 

As the University has grown in numbers, it has also expanded its physical 
facilities. Between 1912 and the outbreak of World War II, the college added 
to its physical plant another dormitory for women (Mississippi Hall), another 
classroom building, a demonstration school, an administration building, an 
auditorium, a dining hall, a home economics building, a library, and a stadium 
dormitory, the last two completed in 1939. This was the physical plant that 
was taxed to the limit when World War II veterans entered the college in 1946. 
Construction since World War II totaling more than $12,000,000 has been com- 
pleted, and there are now more than 50 permanent buildings on the campus. 
An ambitious program of future physical expansion for the University is in 
the planning stage for an anticipated student body of 15,000. 

The progress of the University cannot be measured in terms of the ex- 
pansion of physical plant alone. A student body of 230 eager young men and 
women and a faculty of 18 were present on the day of the opening exercises, 
September 18, 1912. However, for the Fall Quarter of 1965 there were over 
7,000 students and a full-time faculty of 288. Except for the years of World 
Wars I and II, the Korean War, and the depression of the Thirties, the school 
has experienced an upward growth in numbers. 

The first course of study, prescribed by legislative enactment, consisted 
of a certificate course and a diploma course. The rapid development of high 
schools called for a higher course of study at Mississippi Normal College, and 
in 1922 the legislature authorized the college to grant degrees. By 1929 the 
college, its name having been changed in 1924 to State Teachers College, had 
dropped the diploma and certificate course. In 1929 the college was admitted 
to the American Association of Teachers Colleges and accredited by the 
Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. During the 1930's 
new courses were added and existing courses were expanded and improved. 
By World War II the college offered, in addition to its elementary and sec- 
ondary education degree programs, the Bachelor of Music degree, the Bachelor 
of Arts degree, pre-medical, pre-legal, and pre-pharmacy programs, and was 
certified for vocational home economics training. In late 1939, the Hattiesburg 
Chamber of Commerce adopted as its project the changing of the name from 
State Teachers College to Mississippi Southern College. In the legislative 



35 



General Information 



session of 1940 this purpose was achieved, and the institution became in name 
what it had partially already become in fact: a multiple-purpose institution. 
In 1947, the Board of Institutions of Higher Learning in Mississippi author- 
ized the college to give one year of graduate work leading to the degree 
Master of Arts in education. The work of the graduate school has been 
expanded over the past decade. At present, the university offers the doctorate 
in several fields and a master's degree in many of the subject matter fields 
(see the Graduate Bulletin for specific degrees). 

Research has been strengthened at the University of Southern Mississippi 
in several ways: the number of doctoral degrees has been increased; the 
University has established its own scholarly journal — the Southern Quarterly; 
library research materials have been greatly increased; the Computer Center 
has been equipped to expedite contracts and faculty research; and the Office 
of Research and Projects has been established by the University to promote 
research and to assist faculty members in their research activities. For further 
information on the University's research program, see the Graduate Bulletin. 

The expansion of the academic offerings of the institution necessitated 
the re-evaluation of the administrative system of the university. This had 
remained virtually unchanged since 1912. The new system, with the Univer- 
sity organized into two colleges, four schools, and two divisions and these 
subdivided into departments, and the addition of new departments, the em- 
ployment of new faculty members with superior training, and the general 
development of academic standards have all played a part in making the 
University of Southern Mississippi the modern multiple-purpose institution 
it is today. 

The men most responsible for the growth of the University have been 
those individuals entrusted by the Board of Trustees with the administration 
of the institution as president. The university has had six presidents: 

Joseph Anderson Cook, A.B., 1912-1928 

Claude Bennett, A.B., A.M., 1928-1933 

Jennings Burton George, B.S., M.A., Ph.D., 1933-1945 

Robert Cecil Cook, B.S., M.A., Ed.D., 1945-1955 

Richard Aubrey McLemore, A.B., M.A., Ph.D., Acting President 

January 1 to September 1, 1955 

William David McCain, B.S., M.A., Ph.D., 1955- 

PURPOSES OF THE UNIVERSITY 

The University of Southern Mississippi was founded for the purpose of 
serving the psople of Mississippi. The University offers outstanding courses 
in liberal arts, education, pre-professional fields, fine arts, and many practical 
fields of knowledge. The faculty, library, laboratories, classrooms, special 
clinics, and student welfare services are equal to those in other colleges and 
universities in the United States. 

Although the University is primarily concerned with resident teaching, 
it reaches, through various extension and resident centers, workshops, and 
the correspondence courses, citizens in all parts of Mississippi and in various 
other parts of the world. 

The University is proud of the friendly relationship between students and 
faculty members, and an effort is made to work with students as individuals 
in their educational, social, and religious development. 

The purposes of the University as developed by the administration and the 
faculty are as follows: 

1. To have a highly trained faculty, an imaginative, sympathetic, and 
understanding administration, an efficient and cooperative staff, loyal and active 
alumni, adequate equipment, and high academic standards. 

2. To educate in the acquiring of knowledge, skills, disciplines, moral and 
ethical values and humanistic ideals, and in the attaining of a dignified, hon- 
est, and alert citizenship. 



Admission Requirements 



3. To base education on a sound and thorough understanding of the tra- 
ditional and liberal areas of human knowledge. 

4. To provide, together with counseling and guidance, a well-rounded 
program of activities for the purpose of developing in each student a well- 
balanced personality. 

5. To provide areas of development in professional and vocational educa- 
tion in accordance with facilities of the University. 

6. To develop in students the highest types of social graces. 

7. To give each student an understanding of the nature and the funda- 
mental problems of the physical world in which he lives and the moral and 
intellectual knowledge that will enable him to adjust himself to, or change, 
the environment in which he lives. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES

work on the Hattiesburg campus, provided all other degree requirements have 
been fulfilled. This amount of work may be done in two quarters (six calendar 
months), but many students attend on nine-month or year programs. Grad- 
uate students will, of course, have to attend for at least three quarters since 
they may transfer only nine quarter hours from another institution. 

In order to receive an official evaluation of credits to determine eligibility 
for "Bootstrap" attendance, the following educational credentials must be for- 
warded: 

1. A properly executed military Form DD 295. 

2. Official transcripts bearing the college seal from each institution pre- 
viously attended. 

3. Official transcripts of correspondence courses completed through the 
United States Armed Forces Institute, Madison, Wisconsin. 

4. Official high school transcript. 

5. An application for admission should be submitted with the request for 
evaluation. 

All documents and correspondence should be directed to: 
Miss Katherine Brown 
Coordinator of Armed Forces Education 
University of Southern Mississippi 
Southern Station, Box 6, Hattiesburg, Mississippi 
When eligibility for "Bootstrap" attendance has been determined, the stu- 
dent is required to submit five recommendations and a medical examination 
form before the letter of acceptance can be written.

ORIENTATION AND COUNSELING SERVICES 

Orientation and counseling services for students begin even before the 
academic year begins with special summer sessions for those who expect to 
entei- the University in the fall quarter. The summer programs give entering 
students the opportunity, working informally with trained counselors, to see 
the campus and meet many of the administrative officers and faculty, appraise 
their own academic aptitudes and skills, explore their personal interests as 
they relate to educational and vocational goals, learn about possible career- 
related degree programs and majors, and plan their work and schedules for 
the fall quarter. For information regarding these summer orientation and 
counseling programs write to: 

Director of Student Counseling 

Southern Station, Box 75, Hattiesburg, Mississippi. 

Orientation continues for new students, both freshman and transfer, with 
a concentrated program immediately preceding fall quarter registration (see 
the Calendar), when student leaders join the faculty in introducing new students 
to campus life. 

Academic Advisement: Freshman and sophomore students enrolled in the 
Basic College are assigned academic advisers by the Dean of the Basic College. 
These advisers work closely with the Director of Student Counseling. Students 
pursuing pre-professional curricula have special advisers whose interests and 
training equip them to give appropriate guidance in course selection. When 
the student transfers from the Basic College to a degree-granting college, 
school, or division his academic advisement becomes the responsibility of the 
chairman of the department in which the student plans to major. The depart- 
ment chairman may designate another member of the department faculty to 
advise any particular student. 

Office of Student Counseling: The Office of Student Counseling is ready to 
assist any student in educational, vocational, and personal matters. This office 
coordinates campus testing services and administers such diagnostic, psychologi- 
cal, aptitude and vocational tests as may be needed for practical counseling. 
This office also makes available to students a selected library of occupational, 
educational, and personal-adjustment materials. Offices within the respons- 
ibility of the Dean of Student Affairs, such as the Dean of Men and the Dean 
of Women, work closely with the Office of Student Counseling where special- 
ized assistance is required. 

Remedial Services: When diagnostic testing and the student's academic 
record indicate the need for remedial work, the University offers unusual 
facilities for special help. Most of these special services are described under 
the School of Education and Psychology.

Students not living in their homes should arrange to live on the campus. 
Reservations may be made by sending $15.00 to the Director of Housing. Students 
who wish to room together should indicate such information on their reserva-

tion request. Room reservations are accepted subject to the approval of applica- 
tion for admission to the University. Students already living in the dormitory 
rooms will be given until May 1 to make reservations. After that date, space is 
reserved in the order in which applications are received. Room assignments are 
mailed about a month before the quarter begins. ROOM DEPOSIT WILL BE RE- 
FUNDED IF RESERVATION IS CANCELED TEN DAYS PRIOR TO THE 
OPENING OF THE QUARTER FOR WHICH THE RESERVATION IS MADE. 
A student accepting a room in a residence hall will be financially obligated 
in accordance with the housing contract. A refund of unused room rent will be 
made only in accordance with the housing contract. Upon admission to the resi- 
dence hall the student will contribute to the "Dorm Fund" which is used to 
maintain a TV, pay for Homecoming decorations, courtesies, etc. 

Rooms are equipped with the following furniture: single beds with com- 
fortable innerspring mattresses, a dresser or a chest of drawers, chairs, and 
study tables. Students must furnish all linens, bed coverings, pillows, and cur- 
tains. All dormitories are air-conditioned or equipped with an air-ventilating 
system. All University buildings (classroom, dormitory, administration, and 
apartment) are subject to periodic safety inspections. 

Lodging in the fraternity houses is available to fraternity members. Ar- 
rangements are made directly with the presidents of the fraternities. The 
fraternity presidents will furnish the Director of Housing with official lists of 
students living in their houses each quarter. 

Pine Haven Apartments, consisting of 296 one, two, and three-bedroom, 
unfurnished units, are available on the campus for faculty and married students. 
A $15.00 deposit is required at the time of application and is refundable if the 
request is canceled thirty (30) days prior to the date for which the application 
was made. 

Two new off-campus dormitories are now open. Elam Arms, a dormitory 
for men, is located on Hardy Street at the southern boundary of the campus 
across from the Fine Arts Building. A dormitory for women, Hillcrest, is 
located at the northern boundary of the campus alongside US Highway 49. 
These two facilities represent the latest and finest developments in dormitory 
construction and furnishings; they are approved by the University, and are 
available to all students without regard to academic classification. Descriptive 
brochures are available through the University Housing Office. These two 
privately financed dormitories have their own dining facilities. 

Freshmen are required to live on campus, or in the approved off-campus 
dormitories, if they are not living at home or with relatives. Upperclass women 
students are required to live either on-camous or in approved off-campus 
dormitories. Sorority members are expected to live in the Panhellenic Dormitory. 
Upperclass men students are required to live in on-campus dormitories, ap- 
proved off-campus dormitories, fraternity houses, or approved private housing. 
The University maintains a list of approved private housing; and it is the 
responsibility of the student to determine that the facility he occupies is on the 
University's approved list. 

The above restrictions on housing are not applicable to married students or 
graduate students. 

Assistance in securing off-campus housing may be obtained through the 
Housing Office. Behavior of students permitted to live off campus must be such 
that they are acceptable citizens of the community. 

The dormitory lobbies which serve as social and recreational centers are 
supplemented by the R. C. Cook University Union Building. This building 
contains a lounge, a gameroom, a ballroom, a television lounge, the University 
photograph service, offices for religious organizations and student government, 
and meeting rooms for other organizations, as well as five guest rooms, which are 
rented at a nominal fee to parents and other visitors to the campus. Students use 
the facilities of the University Union Building for games, music, enjoyment, 
social and religious activities, and other cultural and recreational purposes.

General Information 



Private dining rooms in the University Commons may be used by clubs and 
organizations for banquets, dinners, and teas. 

The University Commons serves well-planned, attractive meals at moderate 
prices. Special diets may be arranged at a small extra charge. 

HEALTH AND SAFETY SERVICES 

The health and safety record of the University is an enviable one. The health 
education program, which aims at teaching each person how to assume responsi- 
bility for safeguarding his health, is supplemented by the health services 
which the University offers. 

A medical examination blank is given the student at the time he applies 
for admission to the University. The student should have the medical examina- 
tion done by his family physician and should return the completed medical 
examination form to the University along with his application for admission. It 
is urged that any defects noted in the examination be corrected prior to the 
beginning of the session in which the student will enroll. The University re- 
serves the right to require a medical examination of any student at any time. 
No student's admission is complete without a medical examination. 

The University Clinic is a well-equipped infirmary in which the ordinary 
illnesses occurring during the University year, but not during the vacation or 
recess periods, are cared for by the University physician and nurses. Students 
with more serious illnesses or injuries, or those in need of immediate surgery, 
are referred to the regular hospitals in Hattiesburg. Such serious illnesses, in- 
juries, and operations, together with hospital and medical care in private hos- 
pitals, can not be the responsibility of the University. The Clinic services are 
available only to full-time students. 

The University physician has regular office hours for free consultation with 
students. A nurse is on duty twenty-four hours a day. 

AUTOMOBILES ON CAMPUS 

Students and employees of the University are required to register with the 
Department of Safety automobiles which are operated on the campus. Tempo- 
rary permits are issued when the automobile is to be on the campus less than 
seven days. Parking zones have been established along with other regulations. 
A pamphlet, which outlines Traffic and Parking Regulations, may be secured 
from the Department of Safety. Fines are assessed for violation of regulations 
and persistent violators are denied the privilege of operating an automobile on 
campus. A policy showing minimum liability insurance (5-10-5) required by 
Mississippi state law must be presented at the time of registration. 

STUDENT ACTIVITIES 

STUDENT GOVERNMENT 

The functions of the Student Government Association composed of all 
registered resident students at The University of Southern Mississippi are "to 
insure a continuous exchange of ideas and opinions between the students and 
the administration, to secure valuable training and experience in democratic 
self-government, to assume the fullest powers and responsibilities of self- 
government consistent with the constitution and laws of the State of Mississippi 
and the policies of the president of this institution, to promote the general 
student welfare, and to protect the herein enumerated rights of students." 

There are three branches of student government: the legislative, the execu- 
tive, and the iudicial. The executive officers and the members of the legislative 
branch, the Student Senate, are elected by direct vote of the students. The 
justices of the Student Court are appointed by the President of Student Gov- 
ernment subject to approval by the Student Senate.

RELIGIOUS LIFE 

The University of Southern Mississippi is a state supported school and is 
entirely non-sectarian. Religious life is encouraged, and every effort is made to 
cooperate with local churcnes. The Student Christian Federation unifies the 
activities of all religious groups on the campus. Its executive council is composed 
of two elected representatives of the student body, who serve as chairman and 
vice chairman, five appointed officers, and a representative from each active 
religious organization. The Student Christian Federation seeks to provide 
channels for worship and religious development. It sponsors the all-campus 
Religious Emphasis Programs, a Thanksgiving Service, an Easter Sunrise 
Service, and an annual Christmas Tree Lighting. 

The Wesley Foundation, the Baptist Student Union, the Westminster Fel- 
lowship, the Newman Club, the Canterbury Club, the Martin Luther Fellow-

STUDENT EXPENSES 

A primary objective of the University is to hold to a minimum the expense 
of its students. Changes in fees are made, whenever possible, to benefit the 
students. Increases are made only when reauired for support of the institution 
or improvement of the activity program of the students. 

Announcements concerning fees and expenses are subject to change with- 
out notice and may not be regarded as binding obligations of the University.

students living in fraternity houses. All students rooming in dormitories or 
fraternity houses are required to take their meals in the University Commons. 

A room deposit of $15.00 is payable in advance for the reservation of

NON-RESIDENT STATUS. The Board of Trustees of State Institutions 
of Higher Learning of the State of Mississippi has adopted the following 
regulations concerning non-resident status: 



4 6 



Student Expenses and Financial Aid 



The application of a non-resident of the State of Mississippi may be 
considered or not at the option of the executive head of the institution, as 
has heretofore been the prerogative of each institution. For the purpose of 
this by-law and all other purposes, the definitions and conditions governing 
the resident status of applicants for admission to any of the institutions shall 
be as follows: 

a. Residence of a minor. The residence of a person less than twenty -one 
(21) years of age is that of the father. After the death of the father, the 
residence of the minor is that of the mother. If the parents are divorced, the 
residence of the minor is that of the parent who was granted custody by the 
court; or, if custody was not granted, the residence continues to be that of 
the father. If both parents are dead, the residence of the minor is that of 
the last surviving parent at the time of that parent's death, unless the minor 
lives with a guardian of his person, in which case his residence becomes 
that of the guardian. 

b. Residence of an adult. The residence of an adult is that place where 
he is domiciled; that is, the place where he actually physically resides with 
the intention of remaining there indefinitely or of returning there permanently 
when temporarily absent. He is a non-resident if he reaches adulthood while 
residing in another state, even if he was born in Mississippi. 

c. Removal of parents from Mississippi. If the parents of a minor who is 
enrolled as a student in an institution of higher learning move their legal 
residence to another state, the minor is immediately classified as a non- 
resident student. 

d. Twelve months of residence required. No student may be admitted to 
any institution of higher learning as a resident of Mississippi unless his 
residence, as defined hereinabove, has been in the State of Mississippi for a 
continuous period of at least twelve months immediately preceding his ad- 
mission. 

e. Residence in an educational institution not counted. A person who has 
entered the state of Mississippi from another state and enters an educational 
institution within twelve months is considered a non-resident. For this reason, 
any period of time when such a person is enrolled in any educational institu- 
tion in Mississippi may not be counted as any part of the twelve (12) months 
prerequisite to his admission to an institution of higher learning as a resident 
student. Even though he may have been legally adopted by a resident of 
Mississippi, may have been a qualified voter, or may otherwise have sought 
to establish legal residence, such a person will still be considered as being a 
non-resident of Mississippi if he has entered this state for the purpose of 
enrolling in an educational institution. 

f . Residence status of a married woman. A married woman may claim the 
residence status of her husband; or she may claim independent residence status 
under the same regulations, set forth above, as any other adult. 

g. Children of parents who are employed by Institutions of Higher Learn- 
ing. Children of parents who are members of the faculty or staff of any 
institution under the jurisdiction of the Board of Trustees may be classified 
as residents during the time that their parents are such members without re- 
gard to the residence requirement of twelve (12) months, for the purpose of 
attendance at institutions where their parents are faculty and staff members. 

REFUND POLICY. A student who officially withdraws after enrollment 
may obtain a refund in accordance with the following: 

a. A refund of 90% of incidental and special fees paid will be made to a 
student who withdraws within eight (8) days following the last calendar day 
of registration. 

b. A student taking 12 hours or more who withdraws for any reason 
prior to midterm of any quarter but following eight (8) days after the last 
calendar day of registration will be refunded 50% of the incidental and 
special fees. 



47 



General Information 



c. A student taking 12 hours or more who withdraws after midterm of any

istration. 

e. A student enrolled for evening classes will receive no refund unless 
withdrawal is made prior to the second meeting of the class.

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI FOUNDATION 

The University of Southern Mississippi Foundation is a Mississippi cor- 
poration whose sole purpose is to receive and manage gifts, contributions, and 
donations to the University of Southern Mississippi for educational purposes. 
It provides a centralized receptacle for receiving gifts of any nature to the 
University, handling these in a manner prescribed by the donor or in accord- 
ance with good business judgment and making the gifts work for the growth 
and development of Southern. The Foundation is managed by a Board of Di- 
rectors composed of former students and friends of the University. 



5° 



Student Expenses and Financial Aid 



The Foundation Charter was so drawn that assistance could be given to any 
area of development at Southern so long as it is used for educational purposes. 
Some of the long-range plans include: sponsoring research, sponsoring faculty 
chairs, supplementing fpoultv salaries, aiding the library, providing special 
equipment, making possible achievement awards for faculty and students, pro- 
viding fellowships and scholarships, and contributing to the building of the 
physical plant. 

During the earlv years of the Foundation, emphasis will be placed on se- 
curing scholarship funds. This is con c idered to be one of the greatest needs at 
the present time. The Foundation solicits the funds, but the awards are made 
by the University Scholarship Committee.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES 

A number of students are employed by the University in secretarial and 
clerical work and as laboratory assistants, library assistants, and assistants to 
the dormitory hostesses. The purpose of this employment is primarily to assist 
the student in earning a small part of his school expenses. Inquiries concerning 
these work assignments should be addressed to the Director of Student Aid 
and Scholarships. The University also maintains a service to assist students in 
finding part-time employment in and near Hattiesburg. Students should re- 
member, however, that their first business is to benefit by their University 
programs. Usually a student who spends several hours a day earning money 
must reduce his study load. Students should not expect to be able to earn a 
considerable part of their expenses and at the same time carry a full academic 
load. No student should plan a program that allows fewer than thirty hours 
a week for study. 

THE LATIN-AMERICAN INSTITUTE 

The Latin-American Institute, which has operated successfully under Uni- 
versity sponsorship since its founding here in 1947 by the late Colonel Melvin 
G. Nydegger, is a vital part of the University. Each quarter, the Institute 
offers a ten-week orientation course to non-English-speaking people, with 
classes in the culture and customs of the United States, and in the English 
language, including conversation, grammar, and composition. These courses 
are attended by business and professional people and students from Latin 
America and other countries who are accepted as international guests of the 
University. 



5* 



Alumni Association 



Students enrolled in The Latin-American Institute accept over 300 hours 
of instruction during the ten -week period, using the latest teaching methods 
and materials including teaching machines and programmed texts, tapes, audio- 
visual aids, etc. 

An examination to test the foreign student's proficiency in English is of- 
fered through the Institute at specified dates during the year. Any foreign 
student may take this examination by applying to the Institute two weeks in 
advance of the specified date. There is a charge of one dollar each time the 
examination is taken, but students enrolled in the Institute may take the 
examination free for the first time. 

Students interested in Inter-American affairs will find many opportuni- 
ties for profitable study at the University of Southern Mississippi, with the 
added advantage of the chance to mix with Latin-American students and prac- 
tice speaking Spanish or Portugese. For further information, write to the Di- 
rector, The Latin-American Institute. 

UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

The Alumni Association has been in existence since 1917. During the early 
years its chief function was related to placement service. Beginning with the 
session of 1945-46, the organization experienced a rebirth. Recognizing the fact 
that a working alumni association is vital to the development of the institu- 
tion, the Executive Committee began the organization of alumni groups in the 
various counties of the state. On July 1, 1953, a full-time executive secretary 
was employed. 

The Association publishes the ALUMNI NEWS magazine four times a 
year. Active members of the Association receive all issues while four issues of 
SOUTHERN NEWS AND VIEWS are mailed to all persons on record in the 
Alumni Office. Graduates and former students are urged to become active 
members of the organization and help support the program of activities that 
is designed to assist the University in its growth and development. 

The Alumni Association sponsored the drive to raise the funds necessary 
for the construction of the R. C, Cook University Union Building. These funds 
were secured from alumni, faculty, students, friends, and the other people of 
Forrest County and the state. 

Two meetings of the general association are held each fiscal year, the first 
at the annual homecoming in the fall and the second at the Mississippi Educa- 
tion convention in Jackson. 

At the 1954 Homecoming meeting, the association voted to observe March 30 
as University of Southern Mississippi Day. Former students of the University 
are urged to get together on this date when two or more reside in the same 
area. Organized chapters elect officers at this meeting. March 30 was selected 
from the important dates in the history of the school because it was on this 
day in 1910 that the Mississippi Legislature enacted legislation establishing the 
institution. 

The Alumni Association helped set up the University of Southern Missis- 
sippi Foundation which is the receptacle for all gifts to Southern, which gifts 
are, in turn, channeled into scholarships for the students. 

LIBRARY 

The new Joe Cook Memorial Library is a modern, two story building com- 
pletely fire-proof and air-conditioned. Of modular construction, it is arranged 
in four large divisional areas, each division containing its own current and 
bound periodicals, classified books and other materials in the subject field. 
Book stacks to accommodate 200,000 volumes and reading areas for 700 stu- 
dents are intermingled throughout the library, with the book stacks open to 
all. Special features are the study carrels, exhibit areas, a micro-reading area, 



53 



General Information 



typing room, bibliography room, and a rare book room. The Library Science 
Department is housed on the second floor of the building, as are the rooms con- 
taining Mississippiana and archives. The new library was occupied at the be- 
ginning of the Fall Quarter of 1960. 

The library is open from Monday through Friday from 7:45 A.M. to 10:00 
P.M., Saturday from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., and Sunday 6:00 P.M. to 9:00 P.M. 

THE SAM WOODS COLLECTION 

The Sam Woods Collection, a gift of the late Sam E. Woods, alumnus of 
the University and a former consul general of Switzerland, is comprised of 
paintings, large Flemish tapestries, antique furniture, and rare books. In the 
collection are 230 paintings, including the Holy Family by Amigoni from the 
Stennis Collection, a Murillo copy of the Holy Family from the Prado Gallery, 
and many Rembrandt and Durer etchings and woodcuts, as well as oils and 
water colors by contemporary German artists. They have been hung in the 
president's home, the library, and other main buildings throughout the campus. 
This collection of paintings is probably the largest in the state. Much of the 
furniture is of the Renaissance period. 

The very valuable collection of more than 1100 early printed and fine press 
books includes several rare Bibles which have hand -carved bindings and 
which are illustrated by Durer and other artists. The collection also includes 
several atlases of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Of special interest 
are approximately fifty beautifully illuminated pages from incunabula, as well 
as globes made before 1800 and maps of America and other countries made be- 
fore 1700. This collection is housed in the Sam Woods Room in the library. 

PLACEMENT BUREAU 

The function of the Placement Bureau is dual in nature. It provides as- 
sistance to graduating seniors, graduate students, and former students in ob- 
taining suitable employment, and to employers in recruiting qualified employ- 
ees. The services are provided at no cost to the student or to the employer. 

Throughout the year, current listings of employment opportunities, both 
in state and out of state, in teaching, business, industry, and government are 
made available to the students. Also, on-campus interviews are scheduled 
with personnel representatives from schools, businesses, industries, and gov- 
ernmental agencies. Students registered with the Bureau are notified of these 
interview schedules, and all who are interested are given the opportunity for 
individual interviews. 

All seniors should register with the Placement Bureau and establish a con- 
fidential placement credential folder during the last quarter of their junior 
year, or the first quarter of their senior year. These placement credentials are 
very valuable to on-campus recruiters, and to those who telephone or write 
for information about prospective employees. After graduation and/or when 
the registrant has found suitable employment, the placement file is stored, 
and may be quite helpful in later years if a registrant wishes to change em- 
ployment or enter graduate school. 

The Director of Placement is directly responsible to the office of the Presi- 
dent of the University in the administration of the Bureau.

A. ORGANIZATION FOR INSTRUCTION 

The University of Southern Mississippi for purposes of undergraduate in- 
struction is organized into the Basic College, the College of Arts and Sciences, 
The School of Business Administration, the School of Education and Psy- 
chology, the School of Fine Arts, the Division of Continuing Education, and 
the Division of Home Economics. Except for the Basic College and the Division 
of Continuing Education these are all degree-granting colleges, schools, and 
divisions. 

The entering freshman is admitted into the Basic College and remains 
there until he is able to meet requirements for admission into one of the de- 
gree-granting colleges, schools, or divisions. While in the Basic College, which 
normally covers the freshman and sophomore years, the student takes courses 
required in the common core curriculum (see Basic College) or an appropriate 
pre -professional program. In addition, he may take some courses required by 
the particular college, school, or division from which he plans to graduate. He 
may also have room in his freshman and sophomore schedule to begin course 
work toward a major or minor. 

Transfer students may be admitted directly into the upper-level, degree- 
granting college, school, or division provided they transfer the particular cur- 
ricular prerequisites; otherwise, the transfer student is admitted to the Basic 
College until he can meet requirements for admission to a degree-granting 
college, school, or division. 

The University of the Southern Mississippi grants the following baccalau- 
reate degrees: 

from the College of Arts and Sciences: (Possible majors are noted 

under D below, and under

Note: The organization chart facing this page shows how the University is organized 
into the various colleges, schools, and divisions. Three changes have been made 
in the organization of the academic sector since the chart was drawn. The De- 
partment of Office Administration, formerly under the School of Business Educa- 
tion, has been moved to the School of Education and Psychology and retitled the 
Department of Business Education. Under the College of Arts and Sciences, the 
two "earth sciences" of Geography and Geology have been combined under one 
administration with the title of Department of Geography and Geology. The De- 
partment of Computer Science and Statistics has been added to the College of 
Arts and Sciences.

the catalog. 

B. GENERAL ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 

1. Quarter System: The University of Southern Mississippi is on the quar- 
ter system which means that in one academic year, which begins with the 
fall quarter and ends with the summer quarter, a student may earn four 
quarters of credits. A normal quarter is eleven weeks in length and a quarter 
hour (credit) represents one 60-minute class period per week (laboratory 
periods are normally 120 minutes). To transpose semester hours to quarter 
hours multiply the semester hours by one and one -half. Thus a three semester 
hour course transfers as four and one-half quarter hours. 

2. Penalties for Late Registration: Registration will continue after the close 
of the scheduled registration period (see Calendar) for six class days. Beginning 
at 8:00 A.M. on the seventh day of scheduled class work all registration will 
cease for that quarter. 

A late registration fee will be charged to all students registering after the 
scheduled registration period. The fee is ten dollars ($10.00) for a load of nine 
(9) quarter hours or more, and five dollars ($5.00) for a load of less than nine 
hours. 

The course load for which one can register will be reduced to twelve (12) 
quarter hours beginning with the fourth day of scheduled class work. An ex- 



59 



Academic Requirements 



ception to this regulation may be made by the appropriate dean. Students 
registering for the second term of a quarter can not register for a full load 
after the second day of the new term. 

3. Change of Registration: A student who finds that he it not prepared for 
a course for which he is registered may be allowed to withdraw from the 
course on the recommendation of his adviser with the approval of the appropriate 
academic dean. A student will not be permitted to withdraw from a course 
after ten (10) class days. A fee of five dollars ($5.00) is charged for a change 
in registration after the regular scheduled registration period (see Calendar). 

4. Load of Work: The normal student load is twelve to eighteen quarter 
hours. Students on the Dean's List or President's List will be permitted to 
take twenty- one quarter hours during the next quarter of attendance. 

Seniors may take twenty quarter hours during any one of their last three 
quarters provided they made no grade lower than C during the previous 
quarter. 

Students who have maintained a place on the Dean's List or President's 
List for each of the two preceding quarters of their residence may take up 
to twenty-five (25) quarter hours of work during their next quarter of at- 
tendance. 

5. Absences: Students are expected to attend all classes each time the 
classes meet. When it is necessary that a student be absent from a class, courtesy 
requires an explanation to the instructor in charge. Some faculty members allow 
no cuts (unexcused absences from class) while others may allow as many as 
four in a four-hour course. In the event of sickness or other reasons beyond 
the control of the student, a total of thirteen (13) absences in a four-hour course, 
or the proportionate number of absences in a one, two, three, or five-hour 
course may be allowed provided all work is made up. No credit may be re- 
ceived in a course where the number of absences (regardless of the reason) 
exceeds thirteen, or the equivalent as shown above. When students are absent 
to represent the University, their professors are so notified by the Dean of the 
University. When students are absent because of sickness or other acceptable 
reason, their professors are so notified by the Dean of Men or the Dean of 
Women. An absence on a day immediately preceding or following an official 
holiday is considered as two absences. 

6. Examinations: Examinations will be held on the last three days of each 
quarter (see Calendar). 

During each of the two terms of the summer quarter, the last regularly 
scheduled meeting of a class will be used for examination purposes for that 
term's courses. 

No final examinations are permitted prior to the scheduled examination 
period (see Calendar). 

A student who is absent from the examination without valid reason an- 
proved by the Dean of the University forfeits credit for the quarter. Students 
will be charged a fee of $3.00 for special examinations unless excused by the 
appropriate dean. 

7. Grading System: 

A — indicates very superior work and carries 4 quality points per quarter hour. 

B — indicates excellent work and carries 3 quality points per quarter hour. 

C — indicates average work and carries 2 quality points per quarter hour. 

D — indicates inferior to average work and carries 1 quality point per quarter 
hour. 

E — indicates failure with condition. An E becomes an F if the condition is not 
removed within the next twelve months, or. if the student is not in residence 
during all of the next twelve months, within the next auarter of attendance 
after the expiration of the 12-month period. An E grade can not be raised 
higher than a D. 



60 



Academic Requirements 



F — indicates failure without condition and carries no quality points. Quality 
point averages are based on the number of hours undertaken rather than 
the number of hours passed (except in the case of a course taken a second 
time) in determining whether a student meets minimum standards. A student 
dropping a course after the tenth day of scheduled classes will receive a 
grade of F. A grade of F may not be removed by taking a correspondence 
course without the approval of the dean of the appropriate school. 

I — indicates an incomplete record. An I becomes an F if the work is not com- 
pleted within the next twelve months, or, if the student is not in residence 
during all of the next twelve month, within the next quarter of attendance 
after the expiration of the twelve -month period. A grade of I may not be re- 
moved by taking a correspondence course without the approval of the dean 
of the appropriate school. 

G — indicates withdrawal from a course passing. No student will be allowed to 
withdraw from a course after ten scheduled class days except under unusual 
circumstances approved by the appropriate dean. 

H — indicates withdrawal from a course failing. 

Y — indicates acceleration, because of proficiency, to a more advanced course. 

P — indicates a passing grade in non-credit courses. 

Note: A faculty regulation provides that except in cases of obvious clerical 
error, a grade of A, B, C, D, or F may not be changed without permission given 
by the faculty in regular meeting. 

Dean's List: Students will be placed on the Dean's list if they have main- 
tained a quality point ratio of 3.25 or above on an academic load of fifteen 
quarter hours or more, provided they have no grade of D or below. Being on 
tiie Dean's List carries with it certain privileges. 

President's List: Students will be placed on the President's List if they 
have earned a quality point ratio of 4.0 (all "A's") on a load of fifteen quarter 
hours or more. Being on the President's List carries with it certain privileges. 

8. Scholarship Standards: It is necessary that students maintain a reasonable 
academic record. The following are the minimum scholastic standards for con- 
tinuance as students at the University: 

a. A student taking twelve hours or more must pass at least eight hours 
and earn at least sixteen quality points. A student taking from eight to eleven 
hours must pass at least one-half of his course load and earn as many quality 
points as hours undertaken. 

b. The first time a student does not meet the aforementioned standard, 
he will be placed on academic probation. A student already on probation will be 
suspended from the University for the next succeeding quarter if he does 
not meet the above minimum scholastic standard. However, a student suspended 
at the end of the spring quarter is suspended for the following fall quarter. 
Students thus suspended following the spring quarter may earn reinstatement 
for the fall quarter if they attend the summer quarter at the University of 
Southern Mississippi and complete at least fifteen hours with a "C" average 
or better. 

c. A student receiving all 'TV' is subject to automatic suspension whether 
or not he has previously been on probation. On withdrawing from the Uni- 
versity, a student receiving "HV on more than one-half of the hours under- 
taken is likewise subject to automatic suspension. 

d. A student may remove himself from academic probation by: 

(1) earning at least a "C" average on fifteen consecutive hours and (2) achiev- 
ing an over-all "C" average on all work he has undertaken at the University of 
Southern Mississippi. It should be emphasized that he must achieve both (1) 
and (2). 

e. A student suspended the second time for poor scholarship may not apply 
for readmission until the expiration of at least one calendar year and presenta- 
tion of a satisfactory record of work in an accredited college or university, or 



6x 



Academic Requirements 



employment, or military service. No student may be readmitted after three 
suspensions for poor scholarship. 

9. Memorandum of Credits: A memorandum of credits is a statement avail- 
able from the Office of the Registrar showing the courses completed and credits 
earned bv the student as of the date of the memorandum. Memoranda are fifty 
cents each, except that upon request of the student one cony of the cumulative 
record will be supplied to the University of Southern Mississippi Placement 
Bureau without charge. 

10. Classification of Undergraduates: A student is ranked as a: 
Freshman when he has less than 40 quarter hours of earned credit 
Sophomore when he has as many as 40 hours and less than 90 hours 
Junior when he has as many as 90 hours and less than 132 hours 
Senior when he has 132 or more quarter hours of earned credit 
Special student when he is not working toward a degree. 

11. Course Numbering: Freshman courses are numbered from 100 to 199; 
sophomore courses from 200 to 299; upper division courses from 300 to 499; 
graduate courses 500 and above. Courses carrying numbers below 100 are non- 
credit courses. Undergraduate courses approved for possible graduate credit 
will carry the prefix G. Courses taken by extension will carry the prefix E; 
and by correspondence, C. 

Freshman and sophomore students are not ordinarily permitted to register 
for upper division courses. 

12. Course Sequences and Related Sequences: Certain 100 and 200-level 
courses may not be taken for credit by a student after he has completed higher 
level courses in the same subject area. Also, certain sequences of courses may 
not be taken for credit after a student has completed parallel courses which are 
similar in subject matter. Specific applications of this policy are indicated in 
the numbered course descriptions in the Colleges, Schools and Division Sec- 
tion of this catalog. Selection of the courses, as well as exceptions to the 
policy, are left to the department chairmen. 

C. GENERAL DEGREE REQUIREMENTS 

1. Choice of Catalog: Graduation requirements must be met under a catalog 
which is not more than six years old at the time of the student's graduation 
and which carries announcements for a year during which the student earned 
some credit at the University of Southern Mississippi. A transfer student from 
a Mississippi junior college may graduate under a catalog which was in force 
during the time he attended a Mississippi junior college provided the catalog 
is not more than six years old at the time of the student's graduation. 

2. Hour Requirements: An applicant for a degree must complete 192 quarter 
hours, including core requirements and major and minor requirements. Nc 
more than six quarter hours of practical music (chorus, band, or orchestra) may 
be counted toward this total except by students who are majoring in music. 
Not more than twelve quarter hours in physical education activity courses, 
and not more than four quarter hours credit in any one varsity sport may be 
used in meeting total hour requirements for a degree. Of the total of 192 
quarter hours, 96 must be earned in a senior college. 

3. Quality Point Requirement: A student must earn a quality point ratio of 
at least 2.0 (an average grade of "C") based on all courses undertaken at the 
University of Southern Mississiopi. Grades in correspondence courses, extension 
courses, and off-campus workshops do not carry quality points. In the case of 
off-campus workshops this regulation became effective as of September, 1950. 

4. Hour and Quality Point Requirements for Pre-Professional Degrees: 

University of Southern Mississippi students may be allowed to complete degree 
requirements for the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degrees in pro- 



6x 



Academic Requirements 



fessional schools of medicine, medical technology, dentistry, or law on the fol- 
lowing conditions: 

(a) that 140 hours of credit and 280 quality points shall have been com- 
pleted, with a minimum of three quarters and 48 quarter hours of 
residence at the University of Southern Mississippi. 

(b) that all core requirements for the degree shall have been completed. 

(c) that credit and quality points shall be transferred back to the University 
of Southern Mississippi from the school of medicine, dentistry, or law 
to complete requirements for the degree. A minimum of one year's 
work must be transferred. In the case of medical technicians, a certificate 
of graduation from a recognized school of medical technology must be 
presented. In any case a minimum of 192 quarter hours must be com- 
pleted before the degree can be awarded. 

(d) that the program leading to the decree shall be completed within two 
calendar years of the termination of the last quarter of residence at the 
Universitv of Southern Mississippi, except that technicians will be 
allowed three calendar years after the last quarter of residence for the 
completion of the degree program. 

5. Residence Hour Reauirement: Limitation on Corresnondence Courses: 

To become eligible for a deffree at the University of Southern Mississippi, a 
student must meet the following residence requirements: 

(a) He must earn at least 48 auarter hours of credit in residence on the 
Hattiesburg camous of the University of Southern Mississippi. 

(b) He must do the last quarter of work (sixteen quarter hours) on the 
Hattiesburg campus. Any exception to this regulation must be recom- 
mended by the dean or division chairman of the college, school, or 
division in which the student is graduating, and must be approved 
by the Dean of the University. 

(c) He must earn at the University of Southern Mississippi at least twelve 
quarter hours of credit in his major field. 

(d) Military personnel on active duty who are assigned to the University 
of Southern Mississiopi on temporary duty under "Operation Bootstrap" 
may be permitted to qualify for graduation by completing a minimum 
of 40 quarter hours in residence, provided all other degree requirements 
are met. 

A long-standing regulation provides that students will not be permitted to 
do correspondence study while in residence. An exception to this rule may be 
made for seniors. This can only be done with the approval of the appropriate 
dean or division chairman and the Dean of the University. If a student takes 
a corresnondence course during his last quarter of attendance, he may not 
register for a correspondence course after he leaves the campus with the expec- 
tation of completing requirements for his degree. 

6. Basic College Core Requirements: The purpose of the Basic College 
core curriculum, is two-fold: to give all University students a common cul- 
tural experience; and to extend this shared experience over a wide enough 
range of skills and maior disciplines so that the individual student may gain 
a better perspective of his own special abilities and interests. 

It is the purpose of the degree programs in the upper-level colleges, schools, 
and divisions then to build upon the common core experience in guiding 
students toward majors and minors which will reflect their individual capacities 
and life aims. 

The core requirement of the Basic College, common to all degree programs, 
is itemized in the Basic College Section of this catalog. 

Two elements of the core must be emphasized here: 

Physical Education: Freshman and sophomore students are required to take 
one non-credit physical education activity course during each quarter of the 



«3 



Academic Requirements 



freshman and sophomore years (i.e., one course per quarter for six quarters) 
unless excused from the requirement by the University physician or the Dean 
of the Basic College. Only one non- credit physical education activity course 
may be taken in any one quarter. 

Military Science: Physically qualified male students entering as freshmen 
are required to complete at least two years (six quarters) of Military Science. 
They must accomplish this Military Science requirement each quarter in 
sequence, beginning with the first quarter in residence, until the requirement 
is completed. 

7. Exemption from Core Requirements: Students may be exempted from 
any part of the core requirements for any degree on the basis of satisfactory 
attainment as demonstrated by previous academic record. The granting of 
exemption does not involve the bestowal of credit; neither does it reduce the 
total number of hours to be earned for a degree. Its only effect is to increase 
the number of electives which the student may include in his degree program. 

8. Transfer from Basic College to Upper-Level College, School, or Division: 

Beginning with the 1962-63 academic year, all undergraduates entering the 
University below junior class status are assigned to the Basic College. In cases 
of transfer students having junior status or higher as determined by the Admis- 
sions Office, the Director of Admissions will assign the student directly to the 
appropriate college, school, or division on the understanding that deficiences 
must be made up on a schedule determined by the college, school, or division 
concerned. In all other cases the student should consult the office of the dean of 
the school in which he wishes to enroll as to the appropriate time for transfer- 
ring from the Basic College. 

No student may remain in the Basic College after he has earned a 
total of 132 quarter hours of credit. If a transfer has not been made from the 
Basic College when the student earns 132 hours, he will be dropped from the 
University. Reinstatement to the University can be earned only by admission 
to a degree -granting college, school, or division. 

The student will initiate a transfer from the Basic College by filling out 
transfer application forms from the degree-granting college, school, or division 
of his major choice. If a student is refused admission to a degree -granting 
college, school, or division, he may appeal his case to the Dean of the University. 

Once a student is admitted to a degree-granting college, school, or division, 
he should report to the chairman of his major department for academic advise- 
ment. The department chairman is responsible for all advisement in his depart- 
ment, but he may designate a member of his department faculty to advise any 
particular student. The student must carry his copy of the approved transfer 
application, and the adviser will have the departmental copy. In the advisement 
process, the work plans section of the transfer application should be completed 
on both the departmental copy and the student copy. This will constitute the 
student's degree program; and he should be expected to follow it thereafter 
unless changes are agreed to later by the student and the adviser. Any such 
changes should be entered on both the departmental copy and the student's 
copy of the degree program. 

When the student is ready to file the degree application — which should be 
done three quarters before degree requirements are completed, (see paragraph 
number 15 below) — the material in the transfer application will supply most of 
the information needed to complete the degree application. The degree applica- 
tion must be signed by the department chairman. 

9. Change of College, School, or Division: Students wishing to transfer from 
one college, school, or division of the University to another must make applica- 
tion to and be approved by the dean or division chairman of the college, school, 
or division into which they wish to transfer. 

10. College, School, and Division Degree Requirements: In addition to the 
Basic College common core requirement, each degree-granting college, school, 



64 



Academic Requirements 



or division may have its own requirements for a particular degree. These 
requirements are designed to give the student the necessary preparation for 
completing a major in the particular college, school, or division. The additional 
upper-level requirements currently in force are itemized in the Colleges, 
Schools, and Divisions Section. 

11. Courses Numbered 300 and Above: To become eligible for any bac- 
calaureate degree, a student is required to complete a minimum of sixty-eight 
(68) quarter hours in courses numbered 300 or above. 

12. English Proficiency: To become eligible for any baccalaureate degree, a 
student must pass a qualifying examination in English proficiency after be- 
coming a junior. The examination is given on Thursday of the seventh week of 
each quarter; and it is to the student's advantage to take the examination 
during the first quarter of attendance after he becomes a junior. 

13. Quality Point Requirement for the Major and Minor: A student must 
have a quality point average of at least 2.0 (a "C") in the major field and in 
the minor field on courses taken at the University of Southern Mississippi. 

A transfer student's work done in the major and minor fields in another 
institution must average at least 2.0 to be applicable toward the major and 
minor requirements at the University of Southern Mississippi. If the transferred 
work does not average at least a "C", the student must remove any deficiencies 
in that part of the major and minor credit being transferred. Transferred 
deficiencies may be removed by: (a) repeating at the University of Southern 
Mississippi a sufficient number of courses on which grades of "D" were trans- 
ferred and thereby raising the grades in those courses to the level required 
for a "C" average, or (b) striking from the transferred transcript courses in the 
major or minor field with grades of "D." and taking additional courses in the 
major or minor at the upper division level to meet the University's degree 
requirement. 

14. Change of Major within a College, School, or Division: Any student 
wishing to change his major within a college, school, or division must secure the 
approval of the dean or division chairman. 

15. Application for Degree: A student is expected to file an application for 
a degree at least three quarters before degree requirements are completed. This 
application filed with the Registrar will show the work completed by the student 
and the courses planned for the ensuing quarters. Filing three quarters in 
advance of the proposed graduation date will allow time for checking the 
application (see paragraph number eight above) ,and also allow the student time 
for making up any deficiencies found in the degree program. After the applica- 
tion has been approved by the Registrar's Office, it becomes the student's official 
degree program. 

No anolication for degree will be accented until the degree fee of twelve 
dollars ($12.00) has been paid at the Office of the Financial Secretary. 

16. Approval of Faculty: The names of all applicants for degrees are sub- 
mitted to a vote of the faculty. If this vote is favorable, the President of the 
University is authorized by the Board of Trustees to grant the degree. 

17. Degrees with Honors: Students with exceptional academic records may 
be awarded degrees with honors or with highest honors. The residence require- 
ment for such degrees i<* not less than five auarters on the Hattiesburg camous 
with a load of not less than twelve quarter hours in each quarter, and totaling 
not less than eightv quarter hours. In computing this residence requirement, one 
six-week term will be counted as a half quarter when the load is six hours or 
more. A degree with honors will be granted to a student who maintains a quality- 
point average of 3.5 or more. A degree with highest honors will be granted to a 
student who maintains a quality-point average of 3.8 or more. 

18. Second Baccalaureate Degree: The University of Southern Mississippi 
will grant p candidate a second baccalaureate degree based unon requirements 
of an applicable catalog, provided the program for the second degree includes at 



«5 



Academic Requirements 



least 48 quarter hours with at least 96 quality points. The 48 quarter hours 
must be related to a specific major separate from the first degree major; and 
the 48 hours must be completed after the first degree requirements are met. 



D. SPECIFIC DEGREE REQUIREMENTS DETERMINED 
BY CHOICE OF SPECIALIZATION 

In the baccalaureate degree's combination of breadth with depth, the major 
and minor fields are the concentrated areas of study in which the student 
achieves some depth of scholarship or specialization to complement the core 
requirement's breadth. 

Following this general pattern of designating a "major" from an area of 
special interest, the student normally will choose his degree program and major 
as follows: 

COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 
A student seeking the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Arts 
and Sciences will select a major from among the following fields. 



Biology 

Botany 

Microbiology 

Zoology 

Chemistry 

Communications 

Journalism 

Public Address 

Radio -Television 

English (45 hours required) 

French 

German 

Spanish 



Geography 

Geology 

History 

Mathematics 

Physics 

Political Science 

Philosophy 

Religion and Philosophy 

Sociology 

Speech and Hearing Sciences 

Audiology 

Language Disorders 

Speech Pathology 



The student seeking the Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Arts and 
Sciences will select a major from any of the foregoing fields, or from Economics 
or Foreign Trade. For the difference between B.A. and B.S. core requirements. 
ses the Colleges, Schools, and Divisions Section. 

SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 
The student seeking the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration 

degree in the School of Business Administration will select a major from among 

the following fields: 

Accounting Marketing 

Economics Industrial Management 

Finance Personnel Management 

General Business 

SCHOOL OF FINE ARTS 

The student seeking the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the School of Fine 
Arts will select his major from Commercial Art, Drawing and Painting, Theatre, 
or Three Dimensional Design. 

The student seeking the Bachelor of Arts degree will select as his major 
either Art or Theatre. The student who wants to teach art in public schools 
should major in Art and minor in Education (see note under Art Education in 
the School of Education and Psychology). 

The student seeking the Bachelor of Music degree will select his major from 
among the following: 

Organ Voice 

Church Music Piano 

Music History and Literature String Instruments 

Theory and Composition Wind Instruments

The student seeking the Bachelor of Music Education degree will select his 
major from either: 

General Supervision: voice or piano emphasis, or 
Instrumental Supervision 

DIVISION OF HOME ECONOMICS 
The student seeking the Bachelor of Science degree in the Division of Home 
Economics will select a major from among the following areas of specialization: 
General Home Economics Institution Management — Dietetics 

Child Development Institution Management — Commercial 

Clothing Merchandising Teaching Home Economics Education 

Clothing and Textiles Home Economics Extension Service 

Food and Nutrition Home Economics in Equipment 

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY 

The School of Education and Psychology degree programs are a bit more 
complex than those of other colleges and schools, since the teacher education 
curricula embrace "professional," or methods, as well as "subject," or content, 
courses. 

The School of Education and Psychology awards the Bachelor of Arts degree 
(normally a non-teaching degree) with majors in: 

Library Science or 

Psychology 

The School of Education and Psychology also awards two types of Bachelor 
of Science degree: teaching, and non-teaching. 

B.S. (non-teaching) 

The Bachelor of Science non-teaching degree in the School of Education 
and Psychology may be secured with a major in any one of the following fields: 
Architectural Drafting Psychology 

Corrective Therapy Recreation 

Industrial Arts Office Management 

Library Science Executive Secretarial Studies 

B.S. (teaching) 

The Bachelor of Science professional teaching degree is awarded only in 
the School of Education and Psychology. This B.S. teaching degree falls into 
one of three general categories: Elementary Education, Secondary Education, 
or Special Areas Education. Certification requirements for public school 
teachers make necessary certain hour totals and course content for the majors 
and minors in each of these categories. 

For example, the student preparing to teach in elementary schools, grades 
one through eight, will major in Elementary Education for his B.S. teaching 
degree. No academic minor is required. 

The B.S. teaching degree in Secondary Education, grades seven through 
twelve, requires a minor in professional education courses, with a major selected 
from one of the following fields (required hours are indicated where the total 
requirement is more than 36). 

Biology

*Students majoring in economics, geography, history, political science, or sociology and 
minoring in secondary education must include in their degree programs the following 
courses: world history — 8 quarter hours; American history — 8 quarter hours; Mississippi 
history — 4 quarter hours; economics — 4 quarter hours; political science — 4 quarter hours; 
geography — 4 quarter hours. 

**Home Economics majors will enroll in the Division of Home Economics, but will 
also apply to the School of Education and Psychology for approval of their secondary 
education teaching program. 

The Special Areas in which teacher-education programs are available, 
grades one through twelve, are: 
School of Fine Arts 

Art Education 

Music Education 
School of Education and Psychology 

Audiology*** 

Health and Physical Education (22 hours Health, 22 hours Physical 
Education) 

Language Disorders*** Special Education 

Library Science Speech Pathology*** 

***Curricula for the Audiology, Language Disorders, and Speech Pathology majors 
will be found in the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences of the College of Arts 
and Sciences. Any student preparing to become a Special Areas teacher in one of these 
major fields will enroll in the School of Education and Psychology, and will then be as- 
signed to the Department of Speech and Hearing Sciences for courses in the major. The 
teaching degree will be awarded by the School of Education and Psychology. 

Public school teachers may also be certified in the special areas of music 
education or art education (see under School of Fine Arts above). The certifica- 
tion requirement for art education is a 44-hour major in art, with a minor in 
professional education. 

MINOR: 

In addition to the major, each student, where the degree program so requires, 
must also choose a minor (or else a second major). He should select his minor in 
consultation with his academic adviser. A minimum of twenty-eight (28) quarter 
hours is needed for the minor, with the quality point requirement as noted in 
paragraph C-13 above. 

With certain exceptions, any of the areas of specialization or majors indi- 
cated above may be selected for the minor. In choosing a minor, however, the 
student should be guided by the following policies: 

A. A student working for a non-teaching degree must establish a minor 
(28 hours) chosen from among the fields listed above as possible majors with two 
exceptions: 

(1) A student may establish a minor for the non-teaching degree in general 
science by offering 36 hours from two or more appropriate fields (biology, 
chemistry, geology, mathematics, and physics), provided he offers at 
least 12 hours from each field he chooses to include. 

(2) To establish a minor in any field, a student must earn at least twelve 
(12) hours above the core requirements in that field. 

B. A student working for a teaching degree in secondary education neces- 
sarily establishes a minor in secondary education. 

Since many high schools in Mississippi require teachers to teach in more 
than one field, it is recommended that students working for secondary education 
certification plan their electives so as to meet certification requirements in some 
subject field in addition to their major. 

In addition to the areas of specialization indicated above, the University 
offers a minor in dance to exceptionally well qualified students (see Department 
of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation under School of Education and 
Psychology).

THE BASIC COLLEGE (CORE AND 
PRE-PROFESSIONAL CURRICULA) 

SIDNEY E. L. WEATHERFORD, JR., DEAN 

The Basic College administers the student's academic program until he 
transfers to a degree -granting college, school, or division. Since this transfer 
normally occurs at the junior year, and must occur by the senior year, the 
Basic College is the primary advisement and administrative unit for freshman 
and sophomore students, and for those pre -professional students who plan 
to transfer to a professional school for their subsequent specialized degree. 

The primary objective of the Basic College is "general" education, which is 
pursued by means of a core curriculum required of all baccalaureate degree- 
seeking candidates. As explained earlier: 

The purpose of the Basic College core curriculum, therefore, is two- 
fold: to give all University students a common cultural experience; 
and to extend this experience over a wide enough range of skills and 
major disciplines so that the individual student may gain a better per- 
spective of his own special abilities and interests. 

The Basic College Core Curriculum 

NOTE: Students transferring from colleges which operate on the semester system 
may satisfy the core requirements by counting one academic year (two 
semesters) to be the equivalent of three quarters at USM. Thus, two semesters 
of freshman English will transfer as three of the five quarters of English re- 
quired in the core, even though the hours transferred may not total 12. 

The Basic College core curriculum begins with twenty required hours 
(normally five quarters) of English, of which twelve must be English composition 
(Eng. 101, 102, and 103). The other eight hours of English required in the core 
may be in literature, or a combination of literature and advanced composition, 
as explained in the recapitulation and notes below. 

The core also requires eight hours of World History (HIS 101 and 102). 

The Science requirement in the core is either 12 or 16 hours, depending on 
the degree program being pursued, as explained in the recapitulation and notes 
below. 

Four hours of Mathematics are also required in the Basic College core. 

The 12-hour Social Science requirement in the core includes a four-hour 
course in American Government (Political Science 101) required of all degree- 
seeking students, plus eight hours which may be selected from introductory 
courses in Economics, Geography, Psychology, or Sociology (see recapitulation 
below.) 

In addition to these basic courses in major areas, the core requires twelve 
hours which may be selected from Personal Health (Health 179); the Enjoyment 
of Music (MUS 165); Art Appreciation (ART 120); Theatre 103; Introduction to 
Philosophy (PHI 101) or Logic (PHI 210); and Oral Communication (Public 
Address 101). 

Freshman and sophomore students, both men and women, must take six 
quarters of non-credit physical education courses (one course each quarter for 
six quarters) as part of the Basic College core curriculum, unless medically 
excused. 

Freshman and sophomore male students must take the required sequence 
of six quarters of Military Science as part of the Basic College core (see Depart- 
ment of Military Science under College of Arts and Sciences) .

Pre-Professional Curricula 

In addition to its own degree programs, the University of Southern Missis- 
sippi provides pre-professional training for students who plan later to enter the 
fields of medicine, dentistry, medical technology, nursing, pharmacy, optometry, 
law, and engineering. Recommended pre-professional curricula are outlined 
below. Pre-professional programs may also be arranged with individual students 
through their academic advisers in such fields as architecture, forestry, social 
work, veterinary medicine, or the ministry. 

RECOMMENDED PRE-MEDICAL AND PRE-DENTAL PROGRAM 

Advisers: C. R. Brent, Cliburn, Harrises, Payne, B.C. Smith 

The pre-medical and pre-dental curriculum is planned to meet the needs of 
the student wishing to enter an approved school of medicine or dentistry. The 
student should seek the counsel of his advisers in selecting courses that will 
meet the specific requirements of the medical or dental school which he in- 
tends to enter. This is especially true of science, social science, and language 
requirements. 

It should be remembered that the keen competition for admission to med- 
ical and dental schools makes it imperative that the student plan his curricu- 
lum carefully and maintain a superior scholastic standing. A three-year pre- 
medical and pre-dental program is outlined below, but if the student wishes 
to receive a bachelor's degree before transferring to professional school, a 
four-year curriculum may be worked out with the advisers. A student accepted 
in medical or dental school after the junior year may be awarded a bachelor's 
degree by the University of Southern Mississippi upon completion of the first 
year of medical or dental school if the core curriculum requirements outlined 
elsewhere in this catalog are met.

The Basic College 



RECOMMENDED PRE-LAW PROGRAM 

Adviser: Dr. Wilber 

The requirements for admission to accredited law schools vary. Some 
schools require only three years of pre-law study, but many require comple- 
tion of degree programs. The pre-law student should obtain a catalog of the 
law school where he intends to study, and use it in planning his program. Law 
schools expect the pre-law student to emphasize content subjects rather than 
skill subjects. All schools require that their students be able to express them- 
selves well in written composition, so a student who is weak in composition 
should take extra courses. 

The program at the University of Southern Mississippi is divided into two 
parts, and the pre-law student should select one. 

A. The student may earn a regular baccalaureate degree from the Uni- 

versity of Southern Mississippi. 

B. The student may earn a degree from the College of Arts and Sciences 

by completing three years of pre-law study and transferring back a 
year of work from the law school after it is completed. Under this 
program the following requirements must be met: 

1) A mininium of 140 hours with 280 quality points in pre-law courses 
must have been completed, with at least four quarters of residence 
at the University of Southern Mississippi. 

2) All core requirements must have been met for the College of Arts 
and Sciences. 

3) At least one year of law school work must be transferred back, 
the marks for which must average "C" or better. The combined 
total of hours at the University of Southern Mississippi and those 
transferred back from law school must equal 192 or more. The 
work from the law school must be transferred back within two 
years of leaving the University of Southern Mississippi. 

The student's attention is invited to the following courses that might be 
especially helpful in preparing for law school: 

Accounting; 201, 202, 203. 

Finance 310, 311. 

History 411, 469, and 470. 

Political Science 307, 412, 434, and 485. 

PA 101 

The student should notice that most law schools now require an applicant 
for admission to have taken satisfactorily the Law School Admission Test. 
Some schools want this to be taken nine months before entering law school. 
The pre-law adviser can inform a student of the dates and places where this 
test is given, but the student must arrange for taking it well in advance. 

RECOMMENDED PRE -ENGINEERING PROGRAM 

Advisers: Munn, St. Clair 

The following curricula are set up to meet the requirements for admission 
to most engineering schools. The student should note that in each of the pre- 
engineering programs, there are several electives allowed. A catalog from the 
selected engineering school should be consulted before the elective courses are 
chosen. Courses that are acceptable at many engineering schools are English 
201 and 202; Economics 200 and 251; Public Address 101; Philosophy 300, 303, 
and 401; Sociology 103; and Psychology 201.

♦Students who have had two years of a language in high school will take a placement 
test in order to determine the level at which they will begin their language study in 
the University. 
**The phonetics course is required for French and Spanish majors. 

Related Majors: The major in foreign trade (see Economics, B.A.) includes 
a study of the Spanish language and of Latin-American literature and culture 
and automatically gives the student a second major in Spanish. Credit in French 
is accepted for Latin-American students who major in foreign trade. 

Language Laboratory: Language courses on the first and second year levels 
will meet five hours per week: four hours regular class sessions and one hour 
in the laboratory. 

Registration for Courses: It is understood that a student, whether studying 
a foreign language as a part of his core curriculum, as a requirement in a re- 
lated major, or as a major or minor in itself, will begin the language in the 
University at the level of his achievement at the time of entrance (to be de- 
termined by a placement test). If he should be placed in a language course 
above the beginning level, he will not receive University hours of credit for 
the courses not studied in the University. 

Credit Transferred from Foreign Schools: Students wishing to transfer 
language credit from institutions outside the United States may be required 
to undergo examination to determine how to equate such credit and to estab- 
lish the level at which study might be resumed here. 

Class Attendance: Because of the special nature of teaching and learning 
a foreign language, a maximum amount of "contact time" is essential. Foreign 
language students, therefore, are expected to attend all classes except those 
from which they are excused to reason of illness, administrative sanction, 
or the judgment of the instructor. The student is responsible for the home- 
work assigned regardless of his reason for missing a class.

The Department of History participates in programs leading to the degrees 
of the B.A., the B.S., the M.A., the M.S., and the Ph.D. For the Masters and 



107 



College of Arts and Sciences 



Ph.D. degrees please consult the Graduate Bulletin. 

Major Requirements 

A baccalaureate student majoring in history may elect one of three degree 
plans: the BA.; the B.S. Non-Teaching; or the B.S. Teaching degree with a 
license in social studies for secondary schools. His choice of degree program 
should be determined by his plans for the future and in close conjunction with 
his adviser. 

A. Curriculum — Basic College Core 

The student working toward any degree must include in his curriculum 
the required core subjects. 

B. Curriculum — Professional Requirements 

The History major working toward the B.S. Teaching degree with a 
secondary school license in social studies must include in his program (1) the 
education courses required for the Class A teaching certificate (Education will 
normally be the minor for a History major seeking a teacher's license); and 
(2) the following social studies courses, either as core or as electives: Eco- 
nomics 200 (or 2al and 252), Geography 370, Political Science 101 (required as 
core), History 367, and Sociology 103 or 201. 

C. Curriculum — Departmental Requirements 

The student majoring in History, regardless of his degree plan, mus.t take 
History 101, 102, 251, and 252. History 101 and 102 will not count toward the 
36 hours required for a major or toward the 28 hours required for a minor. 
Minor Requirements 

The student minoring in History must take 28 hours in history courses 
numbered above 102. History 101 and 102 are prerequisites for advanced courses 
in European History; History 251 and 252 are prerequisites for advanced courses 
in U.S. History. 
Requirements to teach social studies as a second field 

Students wishing to teach social studies in secondary schools as a second 
field (most high schools in Mississippi desire teachers certified to teach in more 
than one field) should take the following courses, either as core or as electives: 

History 101, 102, 251, 252 and 367 20 

Secondary Education 451L 4 

Political Science 101 (core requirement) 4 

Economics 200 (or 251 and 252) 4 or 8 

Sociology 103 or 201 4 

Geography 370 4 

Social studies electives 8 or 4 

This list is designed to cover the principal social studies fields a high school 
teacher might be called upon to teach. It does not meet requirements for a 
minor, however, since a minor requires 28 hours in the same subject. 

HISTORY COURSES (HIS) 

Students should not enroll in advanced history courses without having 
taken the appropriate European or American survey courses: History 101 and 
102, or History 251 and 252. 

Three hundred level courses should usually precede four hundred level 
courses. In no case should a student take a three hundred level course after 
having taken a four hundred level course in that specific field. 

Economics 310 and Religion 205, 401, and 402 may be elected as History if 
approved by the student's adviser.

DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE (MS) 

John H. Dale, Sr., Chairman 
Connor, Meader, Massey, Roberson, Rouchon, Snead, Weeks, Williams 

AUTHORIZATION 

The University of Southern Mississippi was authorized by the Department 
of the Army to activate a unit of the Senior Division Reserve Officers Training 
Corps on April 3, 1950. The unit was organized June 14, 1950, under the au- 
thority of the Act of Congress, June 3, 1916, and subsequent amendments 
thereto. 

MISSION 

The mission of the ROTC program is to produce qualified commissioned 
officers for the United States Army and to provide citizenship and leadership 
training for all male students during their Freshman and Sophomore years in 
college. 

TRAINING COURSES AND ALLOWANCE 

The ROTC program covers four academic years and is divided into two 
courses. The basic course consists of Military Science I and II (MS I & II) 
is taught during the Freshman and Sophomore years, and the advanced course, 
Military Science III and IV (MS III & IV) is taught during the Junior and 
Senior years. 

The Basic Course 

All qualified male freshmen are required to complete the basic course 
(MS I & II) as a part of the Basic College Core Curriculum. Once a cadet is 
enrolled in the basic course, beginning with the quarter he enters the Uni- 
versity, he must continue with the program in successive quarters and com- 
plete the requirement within six quarters (including summer school). Only 
the Dean of the Basic College may make exceptions to the foregoing. 

Military Science I, first-year military science, consists of one hour of class- 
room instruction and two hours of leadership laboratory (drill) weekly. In 
addition, each freshman must complete a four-hour college course as directed 
by the PMS, during the first year of college. 

Military Science II, second-year military science, consists of two hours of 
classroom instruction and two hours of leadership laboratory weekly. 

The basic course in Military Science is a college course and has nothing 
to do with a student's military service obligation. 

The Advanced Course 

The Advanced Course consists of three hours of classroom instruction and 
two hours of leadership laboratory per week during the junior and senior year 
and an advanced ROTC camp of six weeks duration conducted at an Army 
installation during the summer between the junior and senior year. The Ad- 
vanced Course is elective and a student must meet requirements listed in sub- 
sequent paragraphs to enroll in the course. Students who qualify for advanced 
ROTC are paid by the Federal Government at a rate fixed by the Secretary 
of Defense. The present rate is $40.00 per month during the junior and senior 
year, except for the six weeks camp during the summer. The students are paid 
at the rate of $147.30 per month during the advanced camp and are paid six 
cents per mile travel pay from their home or the University, whichever they 
choose, to the summer camp site and return. 

ENROLLMENT REQUIREMENTS 

Basic Course 

All male freshman students who are citizens of the United States, physi- 
cally qualified, over 14 years of age and less than 24 years of age are required 
to complete the basic course of Military Science. Those freshman students who 



«3 



College of Arts and Sciences 



I 



have completed 6 months active duty for training with any of the armed forces 
or who have completed MST 1, 2, and 3 of a Junior Division ROTC (3 years 
of high school ROTC) or MS 1 and 2 at any military school's division ROTC 
(military high school) may be excused from the freshman year of the basic 
course by producing proper evidence to the Professor of Military Science at 
the beginning of the freshman year. 

All male sophomore students who have completed MS I, NS I, or AS I 
(Freshman Army, Navy, or Air Force ROTC) of any Senior Division ROTC 
unit or were excused from Freshman ROTC for reason mentioned in the pre- 
ceding paragraph are required to complete the basic course of Military Science 
(Sophomore ROTC). Those sophomore students who have completed 12 months 
active duty in any of the armed forces, or who have completed MST 3 and 4 
at a military school's division ROTC (military high school) may be excused 
from sophomore ROTC by producing proper evidence to the Professor of Mili- 
tary Science. 

Any student who transfers with more than 31 quarter hours credit from 
an institution not having basic ROTC as a requirement for graduation is ex- 
cused from Basic ROTC. Any student who transfers with less than 32 quarters 
credit from an institution not having basic ROTC as a requirement for grad- 
uation must complete the basic course in ROTC at this institution provided he 
is otherwise qualified. Those students who transfer from institutions having 
required basic ROTC must enroll in the proper course and complete the basic 
course regardless of the number of hours transferred unless he was properly 
excused from the Basic Course by the institution from which he transferred. 

Advanced Course 

Any male student who is regularly enrolled as a junior in the University 
and will complete the Advanced Course and will meet other requirements for 
a commission prior to his 28th birthday, and has completed any one of the 
following is eligible to apply for entrance into the Advanced Course: 

1. The basic course of any Senior Division ROTC unit of either of the 
three services (Army, Navy, Air Force). 

2. MST 1, 2, 3, and 4 of a Military School's Division ROTC unit, 

3. Twelve C12) months of active duty in any of the armed forces. 

4. Six (6) months active duty or active duty for training with any of the 
armed services and second-year ROTC of a senior division unit or MST 3 
and 4 of a Military School's Division ROTC. 

5. Two years at either of the service academies (Army, Navy, Air Force, 
or Coast Guard). 

6. Six weeks basic ROTC camp for Junior College transfers. 
Applicants must meet the following requirements before being accepted 

into the advanced program: 

1. Pass a physical examination. 

2. Pass a Department of the Army qualification examination (RQ exam). 

3. Have a 2.25 quality point average under the 4.0 system for the first two 
years of college. 

4. Complete specific courses in English and mathematics as directed by 
the Professor of Military Science. 

5. Be accepted after interview with Professor of Military Science. 

The RQ examination and physical examination are administered early in 
the Spring Quarter to students who will be eligible to apply for Advanced 
ROTC the following September. These examinations are administered in the 
ROTC Building. Students who are not able to take these examinations at this 
time may get them by appointment through the Administration NCO in the 
ROTC Building. Representatives from one of the Army Senior Division ROTC 



114 



Military Science 



units will visit the Junior College campus to interview candidates and arrange 
for examination and attendance at the six weeks basic ROTC camp which 
usually starts in mid -June each year. 

Advanced Summer Camp 

The six week summer camp is normally attended by students upon com- 
pletion of the 3rd Year Military Science. Students are paid six cents per mile 
for the distance from the institution to the place of camp and return. While at 
camp each student will receive food, uniforms, medical attention, and pay at 
the rate prescribed for Cadets at the United States Military Academy (cur- 
rently $147.30 per month) from the government. 

Students attending the six weeks basic summer camp will be paid six cents 
per mile travel expense and $78,00 per month. 

At camp the students meet young men from many of the best institutions 
in the United States, thus broadening their contacts and gaining opportunity to 
make friendships that may be of great value in later life. In addition to the 
many physical, moral, and mental features from the healthful camp life, there 
are sufficient recreational features provided to make the stay thoroughly en- 
joyable. 

Commission in the Army of the United States 

Students successfully completing the advanced course and the summer 
camp are tendered commissions as reserve officers in the Army of the United 
States. 

There are certain stipulations whereby a student who completes the 3rd 
Year Military Science may be designated a "distinguished Military Student." 
A student so designated who maintains such standards until he graduates will 
be designated a "Distinguished Military Graduate" and will be eligible for 
consideration for appointment in the Regular Army. 

Awards 

Each year the outstanding ROTC cadets in each class are selected on the 
basis of leadership, scholarship, and military aptitude. These cadets so honored 
are awarded medals and their names are engraved on appropriate plaques 
permanently displayed in the Department of Military Science. These plaques 
and medals are donated by local civic and veteran organizations. Additional 
awards for academic and leadership achievements are presented by local busi- 
ness firms, individuals, campus military societies, active and reserve compo- 
nents of the U.S. Army, and the Department of Military Science. 

Military Service Organizations 

ROTC cadets have the opportunity to participate in several special organi- 
zations within the Corps of Cadets. These include the ROTC Band, Company 
F6 of the Pershing Rifles (Drill Team), the ROTC Rifle Team, Scabbard and 
Blade (Honorary Military Society), and the Ranger Group, 

ROTC Flight Training 

Eligibility requirements: At the time of enrollment in the Army Flight 
Training Program, students must be either enrolled in MS IV (Fourth year of 
Senior Division ROTC), or have successfully completed MS IV but not have 
completed the academic requirements for graduation or commissioning. A stu- 
dent must have a sufficiently high academic standing to be recommended by 
his dean and PMS. Flight Training Applicants must meet Class I standards of 
medical fitness for flying. 

ROTC TWO-YEAR SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM 

The Army ROTC Scholarship Program is designed to offer financial assist- 
ance to outstanding young men in the four-year ROTC Program who are in- 
terested in the Army as a career. Each scholar ship provides for free tuition, 
textbooks, and laboratory fees, in addition to paying $50.00 per month for the 
period uhat the scholarship is in effect.

DEPARTMENT OF 
PHYSICS (PHY) AND ASTRONOMY (AST) 

H. C. Dudley, Chairman 

Bordoloi, St. Clair 

The primary objectives of the Physics Department are to provide students 
with sufficient basic information and technical skills in the various areas of 
physics so that they may be qualified to: 

(a) Serve as teachers in secondary schools. A physics major for this group 
will include Physics 101, 102, 103 or Physics 201, 202, 203; Physics 371, 381, 481, 
plus 9 hours of any other physics course having laboratory. (Total 36 hours.) 

(b) Serve as junior physicists in government or industry. Physics majors 
for this group will include Physics 101, 102, 103 or Physics 201, 202, 203; Physics 
371, 381, 481 plus 24 hours of any other physics courses having laboratory. 
A minor in mathematics is required. Two years of German plus English 332 
is recommended. 

(c) Pursue professional work and graduate study in physics. It is the 
intent of the Physics Department to meet the recommendations of the American 
Institute of Physics — National Science Foundation Committee on Curriculum 
for Undergraduate Physics Majors. Forty-eight hours of physics cannot meet 
this requirement. For that reason any student planning to do graduate work in 
physics should consult the Department about additional undergraduate credits; 
60 hours of undergraduate physics preparation are required. 

NOTE: Astronomy 301, 302, 303 do not fulfill the Physics courses which 
may be elected in (b) and (c) above.

DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE EDUCATION (SCE) 

Including Fundamentals of Science (FS) 
A. G. Morgan, Chairman 
F. Brown, Frazier, Olsen 

The Department of Science Education is operated jointly by the College of 
Arts and Sciences and the School of Education and Psychology. The facilities 



i*3 



College of Arts and Sciences 



are in the College of Arts and Sciences: programs in teacher education are in 
the School of Education and Psychology. Responsibility for the curriculum is 
shared jointly. Graduate programs are described in the Graduate Bulletin. 

Objectives 

The mission of the Department of Science Education is: (1) to provide those 
courses in both the physical and biological sciences which would give a mini- 
mum degree of scientific literacy to all students; (2) to provide, in cooperation 
with the Department of Elementary Education, a curriculum in the sciences and 
science methods for elementary school teachers; (3) to provide advisement for 
those students planning to teach the sciences at the secondary school level; (4) 
to provide programs leading to advanced degrees in science education; (5) to 
work with public schools in the development of curricula, workshops, science 
fairs, and other activities designed to improve science instruction at all public 
school levels. 

Curriculum and Program 

The Department of Science Education is concerned primarily with teachers 
and prospective teachers of science. Although some students will be planning 
to teach a specific science, current public school organization does not encour- 
age too much specialization: familiarity with principles and concepts common 
to all of the several scientific disciplines is prerequisite. Hence, courses in science 
education are so organized as to give teachers and prospective teachers a broad 
understanding of several of the sciences, with the opportunity for enough spe- 
cialization in one area to pursue advanced study. 

In general, all prospective science teachers will study mathematics through 
trigonometry. Calculus is prerequisite for some courses in chemistry and physics. 
Specialization in one scientific discipline will require a minimum of forty (40) 
quarter credit hours in that discipline. Certain courses offered by the various 
science departments specifically for public school teachers are applicable only 
to the degree programs in education offered by the School of Education and 
Psychology. 

The Department of Science Education offers a major in general science for 
secondary school teachers, grades 7 through 12. The recommended course of 
study is outlined below: 

Freshman year: Sophomore year: 

English 101, 102, 103 Biology 101, 102, 103 

Math 101, 102, 103 English 201, 433 

Chemistry 101, 102, 103 History 101, 102 

Geography 103 Sociology 103 

Political Science 101 Physics 101, 102, 103 

Music or Art Health 179 

Psychology 201 

Junior year: Senior year: 

Public Address 101 SED 451, 313, 481 (education) 

FED 328 (education) Electives 20 hours in biology, 

EPY 319, 332 (psychology) chemistry, geology, or physics 

FED 469 (education) Electives 8 hours 

Chemistry 204, 205, 206 
Biology 104 or 311, 300 
Geology 101, 260 

The above program provides a broad background and some depth in all sci- 
ence areas, opportunity for considerable depth and specialization in one science 
area, and background in professional education necessary for effective teaching. 
Because of the nature of the teacher training program, a minor in general 
science is not offered by the Department. Students in the College of Arts and 
Sciences should discuss minors in the sciences with their major adviser and/or 



1x4 



Science Education 



the particular science department chairman. Students in the School of Educa- 
tion and Psychology can major in Science Education and minor in Secondary 
Education. An adequate minor in general science is not possible. The program 
as outlined above for science teachers meets certification standards in all states 
in the areas of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, general science, and 
physical science; and, in most cases, it satisfies requirements for certification 
in combined areas, i.e., biology, chemistry, and general science, or chemistry, 
physics, and general science.

DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY (SOC) 

John N. Burrus, Chairman 
Allen, Blackmon, Hopper, McMurry 

The Department of Sociology offers a major or a minor. Provision is also 
made for the student who is not a major or minor but who wishes to select one 
or several courses in sociology according to his interests or needs. 

Core curricula applicable to the College of Arts and Sciences and the degree 
selected should be followed with care. Sociology majors who wish to meet re- 
quirements for a teacher's license should take note of these requirements in the 
section of the catalog dealing with teacher training. 

A minimum of 36 quarter hours (beyond core) is required for a major in 
Sociology. Twenty-eight hours are required for a minor. 

The Sociology major will complete a minor of 28 hours in another field. It 
is possible for the minor to be taken in any department offering a major, but in 
most circumstances a minor in one of the social sciences is most advantageous. 
The core requirements should be completed as early in the academic program 
as possible. Courses not needed to fulfill major, minor, or core requirements are 
free electives and may be taken in any department of the University. 

Freshmen and sophomores planning to major in Sociology are advised to 
include some sociology courses in their schedules. This will preclude the neces- 
sity of scheduling multiple courses during the junior and senior years. Such 
courses should not interfere with the completion of core requirements, however. 

Transfer students interested in majoring in Sociology are advised to check 
their programs with the sociology adviser at as early a date as possible. 

Course Requirements and Information 

A. All sociology majors must take the following courses: 201, 301, 481 or 482 
and 485. 

B. Students taking the general Sociology major must also take 401 and com- 
plete the 481-482 sequence. The remaining 12 hours may be selected from 
any of the departmental offerings with the exception of 230 and 330. 

C. Students preparing for careers in professional social work may use Sociology 
as a major or minor in a program of pre-professional undergraduate train- 
ing. While the University does not offer a degree or major in Social Work, 
proper planning of the undergraduate program will provide an adequate 
academic background for those who wish to pursue a career in that field. 
Professional training must be obtained in a graduate school of social work, 
but the student is urged to obtain a well-balanced undergraduate education 
with courses representing all academic areas. Proficiency in English, mathe- 
matics, and social sciences is particularly desirable. 

The pre-professional student pursuing a major program in Sociology must 
fulfill the requirements in "A" above and then may select 16-24 additional hours 
in sociology from other departmental offerings. Some recommended courses are: 
230, 304, 330, 429, 450, 470, and 209. The selection of courses should be made in 
consultation with the sociology adviser.

SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION 

Joseph A. Greene, Jr., Dean 

PURPOSE 

The School of Business Administration has as its objective the education of a 
student through a blend of cultural knowledge, economic literacy, basic busi- 
ness tools, and specialized knowledge to allow him to rise in the business world 
to the maximum of his innate abilities. Specialized courses in various fields to 
suit different objectives are superimposed upon a broad coverage of courses in 
the arts and sciences, mathematics, economics and general business. Thus, it is 
believed that the graduate has been given enough specialized training to enable 
him to start work in one of the functional areas of business, and a broad enough 
education with the ability to use managerial tools and exercise business judg- 
ment to rise to the executive levels. 

ORGANIZATION AND OPERATION 

For efficient operation the School of Business Administration is organized 
into the departments of Accounting, Economics, Finance and General Business, 
Management, and Marketing. Each department offers at least one major and a 
student interested in a particular area should examine any alternative majors 
or course emphases offered by that department. 

Whatever major is chosen the student pursues the same curriculum except 
for his major course requirements. Upon completion of all requirements he is 
awarded the degree of Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. 

The Department of Economics offers the Bachelor of Arts degree in the 
College of Arts and Sciences as well as the Bachelor of Science in Business 
Administration. The curriculum for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics 
is found under the section of the catalog devoted to the College of Arts and 
Sciences. 

STUDENT ADMITTANCE AND ADVISEMENT 

A student is eligible for admission to the School of Business Administration 
when he will have completed by the end of the current quarter as many as 90 
quarter hours with a "C" average. For admittance without reservation he must 
have completed or be completing all the requirements under the curriculum 
prescribed for the freshman and sophomore years. A student is admitted with 
some qualifications if he has the required hours but lacks some of his basic core. 
It is imperative that the student will have completed, or will shortly complete, 
the School requirements in accounting principles, economics principles, and 
mathematics. A student will not be admitted under any circumstances until he 
has completed freshman English composition. 

Upon his admission to the School, the student is assigned an adviser within 
the School by the Office of the Dean. His adviser will be his department chairman 
or someone designated by the department chairman who will approve his 
schedule each quarter, provide counsel, and sign his application for degree. 

A student who changes his major within the School must come to the Office 
of the Dean and change his departmental designation and his adviser. 

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS, PLACEMENT AND ASSISTANCE 

The School promotes several professional and honorary societies for stu- 
dents in order to foster fellowship and scholarship among those with similar 
interests. These organizations are: Alpha Epsilon Alpha, professional fraternity 
in accounting; Economics Society, professional fraternity in economics; Delta 
Sigma Pi, professional fraternity for men in all areas of business; Omicron Delta 
Epsilon, honorary society in economics; Phi Chi Theta, professional fraternity 
for women in all areas of business; Pi Sigma Epsilon, professional fraternity in 
marketing; Rho Epsilon, professional fraternity in real estate; and, Society for 
Advancement of Management, professional fraternity in management. 

All these organizations are coordinated under the Business Fraternity Coun- 
cil of the School. 

The School cooperates with the University Placement Bureau in assisting 



*33 



School of Business Administration 



its graduates in finding positions. The student is expected to establish a file with 
the Placement Bureau three quarters before graduation in order to avail him- 
self of all the opportunities. 

There are several scholarships available exclusively for students in the 
School of Business Administration as well as many others for which business 
students may apply. Any inquiry should be addressed to the Director of Stu- 
dent Aid and Scholarships, Box 7, Southern Station, Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

DEPARTMENT OF ECONOMICS (ECO) 

Louis Dixon, Acting Chairman 
Baker, Greene, Johnson, Lee, McQuiston 

The major curricula in economics are intended to prepare students for posi- 
tions as economists in education, business, and government. The recommended 
minor in economics constitutes a systematic study of the economic environment 
in which we live. A few advanced courses have been designed to provide ap- 
propriate instruction in economics to students in other major fields; and several 
comprehensive introductory courses may be taken by those who are interested 
in economics in a less formal way. 

The recommended minor in economics for students outside the School of 
Business Administration consists of Economics 252, 330, 340, 345, 440, 470 and 
one elective in economics. 

The School of Business Administration does not require a minor field. How- 
ever, a student in the School may, if he so desires, minor in economics or include 
an emphasis on economics through his choice of electives. Such a student should 
consult closely with the Department of Economics faculty.

Martin Stegenga, Chairman 
Bracey, J. Davis, Ellis, Guess 

The program of study in management has two major objectives: (1) to give 



M-3 



School of Business Administration 



the student a broad perspective of the organization and operation of the modern 
business enterprise, with particular reference to its relationship to the economy 
as a whole and (2) to prepare the student, by specialized training, to begin em- 
ployment which may lead to positions of managerial responsibility. 

Students interested in the management field have the option of electing to 
major in either Industrial Management or Personnel Management. The Indus- 
trial Management option places emphasis on production activities, motion and 
time study, wage incentive methods, and the nature and characteristics of spe- 
cific industries. The Personnel Management option emphasizes the study of 
collective bargaining, labor law and legislation, the administration of wage 
systems, and the administration of personnel with special reference to the 
human relations aspects of the business enterprise. 

Careers in management are available in industry, government, and teach- 
ing. Beginning employment opportunities for which the management graduate 
is trained include such sample jobs as: job analyst, foreman, production sched- 
uler and dispatcher, time study man, employment interviewer, assistant training 
supervisor, and junior management trainees. The student's broad education and 
training will, when coupled with additional maturity and experience, serve to 
further his career in more responsible management positions, such as production 
or plant manager, labor relations director, and personnel manager. 

The recommended minor in management for a non -business major is Eco- 
nomics 251 and 252; Management 360; and four advanced courses in the Man- 
agement Department.

DEPARTMENT OF MARKETING (MKT) 

Richard C. Vreeland, Chairman 
Sorbet, Williams, Bullard 

There are three basic functions performed by any business organization: 
marketing, production, and finance. The goal of the Department of Marketing 
is to train students to fill competently positions as managers of the marketing 
function. It is necessary, therefore, that the student not only learn the subject 
of marketing but that he also master certain executive skills, of which ability 
to think is usually considered the most important. Other attributes of significance 
are the ability to: (1) solve problems; (2) communicate orally and in writing; 
(3) understand and work with people. 

The context of marketing courses provides the student with a basic knowl- 
edge of marketing principles and techniques. The method used in teaching the 
material enables the student to develop the skills necessary to utilize this 
knowledge after graduation. 

For a student not majoring in the School of Business Administration, a 
minor in marketing can be earned by completing 28 hours of courses in the fol- 
lowing recommended sequence: 

1. Finance 100, and Marketing 300 

2. Marketing 330, 332, and 355 (select any two) 

3. Marketing 400, 432 or 375 (select one) 

4. Any two marketing electives 

Students majoring in marketing are required to take a specialized program 
in either General Marketing, Sales and Sales Management, Advertising or Retail 
Management. In each of these programs a marketing core of three courses is 
essential and should be completed in the following recommended sequence dur- 
ing the senior year: 

1. Marketing 370, Marketing Problems 

2. Marketing 410, Marketing Research 

3. Marketing 480, Marketing Management

SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY 

Carl L. McQuagge, Dean 

The University of Southern Mississippi, through its School of Education 
and Psychology, holds membership in the American Association of Colleges for 
Teacher Education. All undergraduate programs in teacher education are fully 
accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. 

The teacher- education programs offered by the University on the under- 
graduate level fall into three major categories: Elementary Education, Second- 
ary Education, and Special Areas. For details of graduate teacher -education 
programs, consult the Graduate Bulletin. 

PURPOSES 

The purposes of the School of Education and Psychology are: (1) to prepare 
teachers for the public schools and the colleges and universities of Mississippi 
and other states; (2) to offer, in addition to the undergraduate teacher-education 
programs categorized above, non-teaching degree programs on the under- 
graduate level in Library Science, Industrial Arts, Office Management, Execu- 
tive Secretarial Studies. Psychology, Corrective Therapy, and Recreation (for 
graduate level non-teaching degree programs, consult the Graduate Bulletin); 
(3) to provide clinical and professional services to the public schools of Mis- 
sissippi and to the University; and (4) to promote educational and psycho- 
logical research. 

These purposes are achieved through: (1) the work of the various depart- 
ments in the School; (2) clinics and offices for professional services; (3) co- 
operation with the public schools; and (4) cooperation with other colleges, 
schools, and divisions of the University in the development of teacher-educa- 
tion programs that meet requirements for Mississippi certification. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

1. A 2.1 quality point average on all courses undertaken. 

2. Completion of the University's Basic College core.

TEACHING DEGREES 

The student preparing to teach will normally pursue the Bachelor of Science 
teaching degree which is offered only in the School of Education and Psychology. 
The major exception is Home Economics, as explained in the note above. The 
student preparing to teach may also pursue the Bachelor of Arts degree, with 
Secondary Education as the minor. This B.A. teaching degree may be awarded 
by either the College of Arts and Sciences or the School of Education and Psy- 
chology. However, if the student elects to pursue the B.A. degree from the 
College of Arts and Sciences with Secondary Education as a minor, the stu- 
dent's program must be approved by the Dean of the School of Education and 
Psychology (all requirements for admission into a teacher-education program 
being applicable). 

CERTIFICATION 

A student completing successfully any of the degree programs listed above 
will meet the requirements for certification in Mississippi. He will also meet the 
accrediting requirements of the National Council of Accreditation for Teacher 
Education, and will receive the University of Southern Mississippi's institutional 
endorsement. Such institutional endorsement means that the student will be 
certified automatically in about thirty states in addition to Mississippi. 

COMBINED BASIC COLLEGE CORE AND SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND 
PSYCHOLOGY REQUIREMENTS FOR TEACHING DEGREE 

In addition to the Basic College core curriculum, the requirements of the 
School of Education and Psychology consist of courses essential to certification 
and institutional endorsement. These requirements vary for elementary and 
secondary education degree candidates. The National Teacher Examination is 
required of all candidates for the teaching degree. 

ELEMENTARY EDUCATION 

Students preparing for elementary teaching must satisfy the following pro- 
gram requirements. Due to the comprehensive nature of the Elementary Edu- 
cation sequence, the following courses satisfy Basic College core curriculum

in teacher- education with opportunities that will assist them in developing the 
skills and competencies necessary for a beginning teacher. The student teach- 
ing program provides an environment for a realistic evaluation of the strengths 
and weaknesses of prospective teachers. 

All student teaching is done in off-campus cooperating schools designated 
by the Director of Student Teaching. The student teacher's assignment is for 
a full-day, full-quarter for which he earns twelve quarter hours credit. Super-

SPECIAL SCHOOL SERVICES 
Audio- Visual Center 

S. L. Knight, Director 

Recognizing a need for audio-visual services in the state, the University of 
Southern Mississippi has established an Audio-Visual Center on the campus. 
Activities of the Center include a film service for Mississippi schools, a program 
for the use of audio-visual materials in college classes, and courses in audio- 
visual education taught both on and off the campus. 

The Center is prepared to assist local schools in setting up a program for 
the use of audio-visual materials, and to assist through in-service and pre- 
service training in the interpretation of the values derived from the use of 
audio -visual instructional aids in education. 

The film collection of the Audio-Visual Center comprises over 1,700 reels 
on educational subjects. The collection includes University-owned films and films 
deposited by members of the South Mississippi Educational Film Association. 
Through a cooperative agreement member schools buy a specified number of 
films which may be used each week from the total collection of the film library. 
Thus an educational film service is provided for the schools of Mississippi at a 
fractional part of rental charges customary with commercial film libraries. This 
cooperative film service has been in operation for a period of eighteen years 
with a success which predicts a permanently functioning organization. 

The film library, one of forty-nine in the United States with over 1,000 
primary instructional films, is an important part of the audio-visual courses 
providing many stimulating opportunities for students enrolled in audio -visual 
education. 

Any school interested in membership in the South Mississippi Educational 
Film Association should write to the Director, Audio -Visual Center, Box 54, 
University of Southern Mississippi, for further information. 

Psychological and Special Education Clinic 

L. Erl Mehearg, Director 

The University of Southern Mississippi, through the Psychological and 
Special Education Clinic, affords students opportunity for clinical experience in 



*55 



School of Education and Psychology 



addition to the course work in the several areas of special education and 
psychology. The program provides for experience in diagnostic testing and psy- 
chological appraisal, and for working with both children and adults in the 
Psychological Clinic setting. 

Members of the clinic staff and the psychology department serve on the 
regional screening team which assists the public schools of the area in psy- 
chological appraisal of children and the determination of eligibility for place- 
ment in special education classes. The staff works very closely with the State 
Supervisor of Special Education and with state school systems, to provide 
students with excellent practicum facilities and experience. 

The Developmental Reading Center 

Elizabeth M. Antley, Director 

The Developmental Reading Center is an organized group of professional 
people whose primary function is that of helping various segments of the popu- 
lation to improve their reading abilities. 

The Center's functions are varied, but its primary concern is that of edu- 
cating teachers in methods, techniques, materials, and equipment for effective 
reading in the classroom. Additional functions include the training of graduate 
and advanced graduate students for reading specialization in developmental 
or diagnostic and remedial reading. As a part of the diagnostic and remedial 
reading specialization of graduate students, the Center is able to offer limited 
services in diagnosis of reading problems and remedial reading to children re- 
ferred to the Center. The cost of the diagnostic evaluation which includes a 
suggested program of remedial procedures is $20.00, or a proportionate part, 
based on ability to pay. Remedial instruction for four periods a week is $20.00 
per month. 

Consultant services are available to schools throughout the state by the 
Center staff. An up-to-date collection of materials used for reading instruction 
and a library of children's books are open for examination. 

University students and adults may obtain testing, counseling, and special 
reading instruction by applying at the Center. The type of instruction offered 
will depend upon the type of help needed and the availability of instruction at 
the time of application. University students can also receive instruction in the 
reading areas of comprehension, vocabulary development, and study skills im- 
provement through enrolling in the Center's "Improvement of Study" course. 

An annual reading conference is held each June where nationally known 
reading authorities present the program. 

The Developmental Reading Center Faculty and graduate students con- 
duct research in reading and are available to assist other researchers in read- 
ing research. 

Speech and Hearing Clinic 

Robert W. Peters, Director 
The Speech and Hearing Clinic is operated by the Department of Speech 
and Hearing Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences, but it works with the 
School of Education and Psychology very closely in the preparation of Special 
Education teachers. 

This Clinic has a dual function. It provides facilities for the training of 
specialists in the area of clinical speech and audiology, and provides clinical 
services for persons with speech and hearing problems. 

The Clinic's services include both diagnostic examinations and therapy pro- 
grams for both children and adults who have speech or hearing problems. These 
services are available to both University students and members of the com- 
munity at nominal fees.

DEPARTMENT OF BUSINESS EDUCATION (BED) 

Annelle Bonner, Acting Chairman 
Baldwin, Cameron, Ewell, Reck 

The Department of Business Education offers curricula in business teacher 
education, office management, a four-year program in executive secretarial 
studies, and a two-year program leading to a specialized certificate in secretarial 
training. 

The student who plans to teach business subjects on the high school level will 
follow the curriculum prescriptions which lead to the Bachelor of Science teach- 
ing degree. He will enroll in the School of Education and Psychology upon com- 
pletion of his work in the Basic College and, therefore, must meet the admission 
requirements for that school. His major field of concentration will be in busi- 
ness subject matter prescribed by the Department of Business Education. The 
professional education and psychology requirements constitute the minor. 

The recommended minor in secretarial studies is 12 hours in typewriting, 
12 hours in shorthand, and 12 hours in advanced business education courses. A 
year of typewriting and a year of shorthand taken in high school will reduce the 
number of recommended hours to 28. 

To complete the curriculum requirements in business teacher education, 
executive secretarial studies, or secretarial training, one course in typewriting 
and one course in shorthand must be taken at the University of Southern Mis- 
sissippi. A student with one year of typewriting in high school cannot get credit 
for BED 101, and a student with one year of shorthand in high school cannot 
get credit for BED 201. A student who has had more work than this in either or 
both fields should consult with the Chairman of the Department of Business 
Education about the appropriate beginning courses for his program. With spe- 
cial permission from the Department Chairman, a student may graduate with a 
major in business teacher education without shorthand. In this case, the Class A 
teaching certificate will reveal this inadequacy.

The Department of Psychology offers a full range of courses in psychology 
in either of two major sequences: general and pre -professional. It also func- 
tions as a service department in teacher education, offering certain courses 
required for teacher certification. The Department also offers courses for other 
schools and departments which require or recommend courses in psychology 
in their respective curricula. For graduate programs consult the Graduate 
Bulletin. 

Requirements for Major 

A student majoring in psychology may elect one of several alternative plans. 
He may work toward either the B.S. or the B.A. degree. In each degree pro- 
gram he may follow either the pre-professional major sequence, or he may elect 
the general major program. The student's choice of program should be deter- 
mined by his plans for the future. 

General Psychology Major 

This major is provided for the student who is interested in psychology and 
who plans to enter an occupation other than professional psychology. The stu- 
dent who elects this major will not be recommended for professional work in 
psychology or for graduate professional training. Students aspiring to ad- 
vanced professional training in psychology should take the pre-professional 
sequences.

This major sequence is planned to provide the student with the background 
and skills essential for graduate professional training in psychology. 

A. Curriculum — Basic College and School Requirements 

The student working toward either degree must include the appropriate 
core curriculum requirements for his degree. 

Students who contemplate advanced graduate work are reminded that a 
reading knowledge of two foreign languages is usually required. Study of 
German or French is recommended as a part of the undergraduate program 
for pre-professional psychology majors. Bachelor of Arts students will take one 
of these languages to meet core requirements.

DEPARTMENT OF SCHOOL ADMINISTRATION, 
SUPERVISION, AND CURRICULUM (AED) 

James H. Mailey, Chairman 
Baxter, Kinlaw, McQuagge, Moody, Owings, Thomas 

The Department of School Administration, Supervision, and Curriculum 
offers programs for the preparation of administrators for the public schools and 
colleges and for teachers of school administration. These preparation programs 
are offered only at the graduate level and lead to the master's degree, the sixth 
year specialist certificate, and the doctor's degree. For a description of these pro- 
grams, consult the Graduate Bulletin. 

DEPARTMENT OF SCIENCE EDUCATION (SCE) 

Including Fundamentals of Science, (FS) 

A. G. Morgan, Chairman 

F. Brown, Frazier, Olsen 

The Department of Science Education is operated jointly by the College of 
Arts and Sciences, and the School of Education and Psychology. The facilities 
are in the College of Arts and Sciences; programs in teacher education are in 
the School of Education and Psychology. Responsibility for the curriculum is 
shared jointly. Graduate programs are described in the Graduate Bulletin. 

PURPOSES 

The mission of the Department of Science Education is: (1) to provide those 
courses in both the physical and biological sciences which would give a mini- 
mum degree of scientific literacy to all students; (2) to provide, in cooperation 
with the Department of Elementary Education, a curriculum in the sciences and 
science methods for elementary school teachers; (3) to provide advisement for 
those students planning to teach the sciences at the secondary school level; (4) 
to provide programs leading to advanced degrees in science education; (5) to 
work with public schools in the development of curricula, workshops, science 
fairs, and other activities designed to improve science instruction at all public 
school levels. 

CURRICULUM AND PROGRAM 

The Department of Science Education is concerned primarily with teachers 
and prospective teachers of science. Although some students will be planning 
to teach a specific science, current public school organization does not encourage 
too much specialization; familiarity with principles and concepts common to all 
of the several scientific disciplines is prerequisite. Hence, courses in science 
education are so organized as to give teachers and prospective teachers a broad 
understanding of several of the sciences, with the opportunity for enough spe- 
cialization in one area to pursue advanced study. 

In general, all prospective science teachers will study mathematics through 
trigonometry. Calculus is prerequisite for some courses in chemistry and physics. 
Specialization in one scientific discipline will require a minimum of forty (40) 
quarter credit hours in that discipline. Certain courses offered by the various 
science departments specifically for public school teachers are applicable only 
to the degree programs in education offered by the School of Education and Psy- 
chology. 

The Department of Science Education offers a major in general science for 
secondary school teachers, grades 7 through 12. The recommended course of 
study is outlined below: 

Freshman year: Sophomore year: 

English 101, 102, 103 Biology 101, 102, 103 

Math 101, 102, 103 English 201, 433

Geology 101, 260 
The above program provides a broad background and some depth in all sci- 
ence areas, opportunity for considerable depth and specialization in one science 
area, and background in professional education necessary for effective teaching. 
Because of the nature of the teacher training program, a minor in general 
science is not offered by the Department. Students in the College of Arts 
and Sciences should discuss minors in the sciences with their major adviser 
and/or the particular science department chairman. Students in the School 
of Education and Psychology can major in Science Education and minor in 
Secondary Education. An adequate minor in general science is not possible. 
The program as outlined above for science teachers meets certification standards 
in all states in the areas of biology, chemistry, physics, earth sciences, general 
science, and physical science; and, in most cases, satisfies requirements for 
certification in combined areas, i.e., biology, chemistry, and general science, 
or chemistry, physics, and general science.

DIVISION OF CONTINUING EDUCATION 

Paul C. Morgan, Dean 
PURPOSES 

The University of Southern Mississippi is cognizant of community and 
public needs. It accepts the challenge of assisting in these areas so far as pos- 
sible within the scope of law and policy. It makes available its staff, its lead- 
ership, its facilities, and the products of its research in stimulating educational, 
cultural, governmental, and material growth. Such services are provided 
through consultations, conferences, institutes, workshops, resident centers, 
extension classes, correspondence study, and non-credit community service 
courses. 

DEPARTMENT OF CORRESPONDENCE 

For tho c e who are unable to atterd the University, the Department of Cor- 
respondence of the Division of Continuing Education offers at a nominal fee 
a number of course- which may be taken by correspondence for University 
credit. As many as 48 quarter hours (no more than 12 in one academic area) 
of the total 192-hour baccalaureate degree requirements may be earned in 
such correspondence courses, subiect to the provisions outlined in detail in the 
special issue of the University Bulletin devoted to the Division of Continuing 
Education. The Department of Correspondence has a contract with the United 
States Armed Forces Institute of Madison, Wisconsin. Under the terms of this 
contract, the United States Government will pay the tuition charge of cor- 
respondence courses for members of the Armed Forces throughout the world. 
Additional information concerning rorresnondencp oou^se^ for military per- 
sonnel may be obtained from the 1965-66 Bulletin of the Division of Continuing 
Education. Correspondence Section, or from the 19 p 5 edition of the United 
States Armed Forces Institute's publication entitled, "Correspondence Courses 
Offered by Colleges and Universities through the United States Armed Forces 
Institute." 

DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY SERVICES 

In 1962, the Division of Continuing Education officially added a Depart- 
ment of Adult Education to serve as an administrative unit through which the 
University could offer non-credit courses of a special interest nature to the 
general public. This department was the forerunner of the present Department 
of Community Services. 

The activities of the Department of Communitv Services are being gradu- 
ally expanded, and currently include courses designed to appeal to the profes- 
sional, cultural, and recreational interests of the adult citizens of the Univer- 
sity community. In planning non-credit courses, an attempt is made to prevent 
duplication of credit courses currently offered in the University curricula. 

DEPARTMENT OF 
CONFERENCES, INSTITUTES, AND WORKSHOPS 

Conferences, institutes, and workshops have been h°ld on the University 
of Southern Mississippi campus for several years. However, the coordination of 
these activities has only recently become a responsibility of the Division of 
Continuing Education. This Division now stands ready at all times to assist 
educational, professional, business, and industrial groups in setting up confer- 
ences, institutes, workshops, and related activities on the college campus. Such 
activities are welcomed to the campus, regardless of whether they are for one 
day, several days, or several weeks. 

Conferences, institutes, and workshops may carry college credit, provided 
prior approval is given by the Academic Council, and provided approved in- 



"7 



Division of Continuing Education 



structors, consultants, and lecturers are employed. Normally a maximum of 
one and one-half quarter hours credit per week may be earned in such activi- 
ties. The tuition fee for this credit is $8.00 per quarter hour. Sponsoring individ- 
uals and organizations may also assess, upon approval, special fees to help 
defray the expenses of the program. 

Convenient and comfortable building facilities for large and small group 
meetings are available on the central campus. Housing in University dormi- 
tories or the University Union Building and meals at the University Commons, 
all at normal rates, are also available to individuals participating in both credit 
and non-credit programs. Motels, restaurants, and shopping centers are within 
walking distance of the campus. 

DEPARTMENT OF EXTENSION AND RESIDENT CENTERS 

The function of the Department of Extension and Resident Centers is to 
make available, as largely as possible, to every community and individual in 
the state the advantages of the general equipment, educational training, and 
specialized information represented on the campus of the University. 

Arrangements can be made to offcr by extension most of the undergradu- 
ate and some of the graduate courses included in the general catalog of the 
University. In-service programs, running over a period of six to nine months, 
and short term courses, with or without credit, may also be organized through 
the Extension Department. 

The University currently operates resident centers on Keesler Air Force 
Base, in the Jefferson Davis Junior College facilities at Handsboro, in the Mu- 
nicipal Junior College facilities at Meridian, in the Belhaven College facilities 
at Jackson, and in the Natchez-Adams County High School facilities at Natchez. 
The academic programs of the Jackson. Natchez, and Keesler Air Fo r ce Base 
Centers include the first three years of college work, while the centers at Hands- 
boro and Meridian offer only the third year of work in order that there may be 
no repetition of the courses offered by the local junior college. Graduate 
courses are being offered in increasing numbers at all the resident centers. 

Permanent extension centers are in operation in the Picayune High School 
Building, the Jackson County Junior College facilities at Gautier, and the 
Southwest Mississippi Junior College facilities at Summit. The academic pro- 
gram at these centers includes the junior year of college work and occasional 
graduate courses. 

Anyone interested in attending one of these resident or extension centers 
should contact Dr. Paul Morgan, Dean of Continuing Education, Box 55, South- 
ern Station, Hattiesburg, Mississippi. 

ASSOCIATE DEGREE NURSING PROGRAM 

The University of Southern Mississippi, through its Division of Continuing 
Education, and with the cooperation of the Jefferson Davis Memorial Hospital 
in Natchez, initiated the Associate Degree in Nursing Program at the Natchez 
Resident Center at the beginning of the 1964 Fall Quarter. This program, based 
on the completion of seven quarters of work, is designed to prepare the stu- 
dent as a practitioner of general duty nursing. At. the same time, it will pro- 
vide experiences whereby scientific knowledge and understanding of human 
behavior may be utilized in the performance of patient-centered nursing care. 
Graduates of this program are prepared for beginning general duty nurse 
positions and are eligible to write the state board examination required for be- 
coming a registered nurse. 

To earn the Associate of Science in Nursing Degree, a student must make 
no less than a "C" in any Nursing course and must make a "C" average in all 
other courses comprising the curriculum of the program. 

A maximum of th~ee years from the date of beginning the program will 
be given the student to complete the work for the Associate of Science

in Nursing Degree. Students withdrawing from the program and returning at a 
subsequent date must complete the requirements for a degree which prevail 
at the time of re-entrance into the program. 

Students who fail to develop the qualities essential to the profession of 
Nursing may be asked to withdraw from the Associate Degree Nursing Pro- 
gram. 

In its effort to attain the objective of prepared competent practitioners of 
nursing, the Associate Degree in Nursing Program is designed to provide in 
the classroom, in the hospital, and in the community organized subject mat- 
ter and learning situations which enable the student to develop: 

1. Scientific knowledge, understanding, and clinical skill necessary to iden- 
tify nursing problems, plan their solution, initiate appropriate action, and eval- 
uate the results as the student practices nursing in general duty positions; 

2. Knowledge and skill in human relations to assist in total nursing care; 

3. Ability to think and base actions on principles rather than techniques; 

3. Social understanding of patients not only as occupants of the sickroom, 
but also as members of a family, a neighborhood, and a community; 

5. Health knowledge and skills to interpret information for the patient and 
his family in formulating and securing goals of positive health in all situations; 

6. Realization of obligations — physical, spiritual, social, and moral — to the 
nurse, to the profession, and to these served.

Life 151 and 351. The same courses may be selected for electives. The only 
prerequisite to these courses for non -majors is the necessary academic standing; 
courses with junior or senior numbers may not be taken by freshmen and 
sophomores. Non-majors who wish to substitute other courses for those named 
above may do so if they have had the necessary prerequisites to the courses. 

A student may minor in any area in which he can major. The twenty-eight 
hours of courses for a minor in a specialized area such as Institution Manage- 
ment should be approved by the Chairman of The Division of Home Economics. 

CHILD DEVELOPMENT (CD) 

The child development curriculum is designed to interest majors with 
special abilities and interests in young children. It provides opportunities to 
observe and work with nursery school children. Specialization in this area pre- 
pares a student for nursery school teaching and administration and for leader- 
ship in educational programs of children's institutions. Those who wish to 
begin study for positions in such areas as child welfare, college nursery schools, 
or private nursery schools should follow the curriculum in child development. 

NURSERY SCHOOL 

The University Nursery School was established in 1929 as a unit within the 
Division of Home Economics to provide a laboratory in which students might 
observe the development and relationships of a group of normal, healthy young 
children and participate in directing the various Nursery School activities. The 
School accommodates children between the ages of two and a half and five 
years. It operates on a full schedule (nine o'clock in the morning to three o'clock 
in the afternoon) five days per week, throughout the year. 

The daily program is planned to create an environment rich in possibilities 
for developing the child's mental, physical, and social self as well as attaining 
a greater degree of emotional maturity. The enrollment is made up of an equal 
number of boys and girls in the various age groups from town, faculty, and 
student families. 

The Nursery School, which was the first to be established in Mississippi, 
is located on the first floor of the Home Economics Building. It has ample space 
indoors and a large porch and fenced-in play area out-doors. In both space and 
equipment it meets high standards. The climate permits outdoor play the year 
round. Requests for registration must be filed with the Director of the Nursery 
School well in advance of the time the child is to be enrolled. Any child may 
qualify who meets the age and development requirements. 

INFANT DEVELOPMENT CENTER 

The Infant Development Center is the newest child development labora- 
tory. It i^ providing learning experiences in observation and participation with 
children less than three years of age. Students are able to see and work with 
two-year-olds in a morning play group and help care for infants who are given 
all day care. This Center increases the opportunities for home economics ma- 
jors to observe, study, and participate with children from the ages of babyhood 
through pre -school years. The child development program enriches the home 
economics major by providing learning experiences that develop competencies 
in understanding infants and young children.

Marriage and Family Life 



MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LIFE (M&FL) 

Marriage today is becoming widely recognized as the most important voca- 
tion for which young people can prepare. 

The primary objective of the marriage and family life curriculum is to 
assist college students to grow into intelligent, effective and satisfying family 
members in their own homes. The vast majority of youth today marry and 
establish homes of their own. There is grave evidence of the need for giving 
intelligent and functional guidance to these young people in order that their 
homes can be satisfying and lasting. Although the basic emphasis of the cur- 
riculum is learning to become a good marriage partner and parent, it also 
qualifies the student for some avenues of employment for additional income 
and/or as a means of self-expression. 

There is one major, General Home Economics, which incorporates under- 
graduate Marriage and Family Life courses in the Home Economics core.
